Paying For School

We’re surprisingly affordable. Our fall and spring semester costs are comparable to RIC and URI.

SCE awards thousands of dollars every semester through a wide range of scholarships including women, transfer students, students from diverse backgrounds, former and active military, and others.  

You may qualify for federal aid and we offer financial guidance to help you complete the application process.
