Here’s what Tuition Reimagined gives SPU students:


25% tuition reduction

While schools across the country are raising tuition, we reduced our tuition rate by 25%, making us the first private university in the Pacific Northwest to make this kind of change. Our new annual tuition is $35,100 (before scholarships, grants, and loans).
