Cost of Attendance

The cost of education at Bryn Mawr includes not only tuition, fees, room and board, but also an estimated allowance for personal expenses, books and supplies, and for students who reside off-campus, a living allowance. But you should know that the tuition and fees cover only 50 percent of the actual cost of a Bryn Mawr education. Gifts from alumnae and friends, income from the college endowment and income from the current operating budget cover the balance of the costs.
