Undergraduate Costs


Lewis & Clark, as a private institution, receives only modest support from federal and state funds. Additional income from endowment and gifts from trustees, alumni, and other friends of the institution help support the balance of costs for services provided. Lewis & Clark reserves the right to change the charges for tuition, fees, and residence costs at any time and at the discretion of its Board of Trustees.
