This tuition calculator tool shows how much a school spends on student instruction—that is, what they invest in the faculty and resources required to offer coursework—relative to what a student pays in tuition and fees. Think of it as an estimate of the “bang for your tuition buck” for every college and university in the country. This tool’s data and its accompanying text is periodically updated with the most recent data available. They were last updated on January 14, 2022 with the fiscal year 2018 data from the IPEDS Finance Survey.
