Fall 2021 is special.

Paying for college has never been more pressing of an issue than it is now. That’s why there’s never been a better time to belong at Ashland.

Ashland University recently announced that for Fall 2021 face-to-face instruction and activities will be expanded. While safety protocols still remain in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19, starting in August of this year, the college experience at Ashland will feel closer to what it’s been traditionally.

But that’s not the only reason why Fall 2021 will be special. We’re also creating brand new opportunities for Ashland University students to succeed.

Tuition Relief Scholarship

To ease the financial burden on students and families for the 2021-2022 academic year, Ashland University is offering a one-time Tuition Relief Scholarship available to first-time, full-time residential freshmen. This “2 for 1” scholarship is powerful and simple: enroll this fall and pay your first semester’s tuition after other financial aid has been applied, and Ashland picks up the bill for your tuition in Spring 2022 (as long as you maintain a 2.0 GPA.)

Four-Year Tuition Freeze

We have a four-year tuition freeze. This freeze means that tuition rates are guaranteed not to go up for your freshman through senior years. That means you can know upfront, without a doubt, how much your education at Ashland will cost in full.

Build your future and become who you are meant to be, here.

No matter which educational path you take, Ashland University’s emphasis on helping you discover and develop your unique interests and future trajectory means your experience as a student is our highest priority. Being at Ashland University means being part of a place where you, as a unique individual, matter. Where you can be who you are, believe what you believe, and receive the tools you need to make sound decisions on your own and draw your own conclusions. Where you’ll receive a great, affordable education defined by personal attention and mentorship and internship opportunities. Where you learn directly from world-class faculty and build relationships that last a lifetime within a culture of respect, support and safety. Where our commitment to you doesn’t end at graduation but instead extends out across the rest of your life.

You as an individual can be who you are – believe what you believe – form your own opinions and we’ll help give you the tools to foster those and make educated decisions on your own to draw your own conclusions.



How This Works


Afford here.

Across the board, through scholarships, grants, financial aid and other resources at our disposal, for students entering Fall semester 2021, we are making an Ashland University education more affordable than it’s ever been. Learn more about all the ways we are committed to making your college experience an affordable one!


As a response to the current pandemic, the Tuition Relief Scholarship is a once in a lifetime opportunity to have Spring 2022 semester paid for in full. If you are considering Ashland University starting in Fall 2021, this is one of the best values available at the college level, nationwide.


Likewise, the four-year tuition freeze is in place only for incoming freshmen for Fall 2021. Now is the best time ever to lock down tuition rates for your entire undergraduate career and know, for certain, rates will never go up the next year.


Along with our four-year tuition freeze and the Tuition Relief Scholarship for incoming residential freshman for Fall 2021, we offer a wide range of grants and scholarships.

The Ashland Promise is the commitment we’ve made to each student. This Promise means that when you come to Ashland, you will receive the individual attention you deserve as you are taught by world-class faculty who are invested in your future and dedicated to teaching you “how” to think and not just “what” to think. You will have hands-on transformational experiences and mentorship opportunities as you earn an affordable education within a culture of respect. This also means that our commitment to you doesn’t end after four years. Instead, when you belong here, you belong forever. Your time at Ashland is truly just the beginning of a lifetime relationship built on respect for who you are as a person, and defined by ongoing support.
