Arrupe College makes a high-quality Jesuit education available to students at an affordable cost. Most students graduate from Arrupe with little or no debt.

Arrupe is specifically designed for students with limited financial resources, and all Arrupe applicants must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid (RISE Act). It is expected that each student will receive Federal Pell Grants and State of Illinois MAP Grants, bringing the total net cost of attendance to less than $2,000 per year.

Arrupe students are expected to live at home with their families, eliminating room and board expenses. Arrupe will also help students secure outside employment opportunities, allowing them to earn additional funds to cover minimal tuition costs and other personal expenses.

Without grants or scholarships, Arrupe College tuition and fees are $13,688 for the 2023-2024 school year. Please note that tuition and fees are subject to change.
