Annual tuition at Rhodes is about $39,000, to which a student should expect to add another $11,000 for living and other school expenses. However, in addition to working hard to meet students with financial needs—a full 92 percent of undergraduates receive aid—the school offers many merit-based scholarships. Forty-four percent of students will take out loans, and the average cumulative student debt is $17,000. The Rhodes Student Associate Program is a unique work program that matches students with “meaningful employment that requires advanced skills and dedication.” The program currently offers more than 100 positions in a variety of both academic and administrative departments. Rhodes also facilitates many off-campus student employment opportunities with local non-profits.
