At UE, we’re looking for motivated and curious students who want to be challenged. Located in a city that offers big opportunities and personal connections, we pride ourselves on making a liberal arts and sciences education worth your investment. While every college says they can offer life changing experiences like internships and study abroad, we guarantee you can do all of that and more in just four years. That’s the UE difference.

Never assume that you can't afford a school based on the price tag alone.

At the University of Evansville, we strive to provide a quality, experiential education at an affordable cost. Paying for college involves a partnership between our students, their families, and the college. The financial aid office strives to provide access to a UE education by proactively serving and educating students and families. We look carefully at the unique financial circumstances of every family and offer every student the best package of support we can. Zero percent of full-time, degree seeking, traditionally enrolled undergraduate students pay the full “sticker” price.

The University of Evansville is ranked the #3 best midwest value school, #4 best undergraduate business program among small private collages, #9 best regional university (midwest), #24 best undergraduate engineering program among small privage colleges, and a best school for Study Abroad by U.S. News & World Report's 2018 rankings.

So, what does this mean? We know students and parents “worry” about college costs. That’s why we invest in resources to keep your costs affordable so that the UE experience is attainable. And, we will continue to invest in you from the moment you choose to become a Purple Ace.
