Based on the information you have provided, the following calculations represent the average net price of attendance that students similar to you paid in the given year:
Academic Year: 2016-17
Grants and scholarships do not have to be repaid. Some students also qualify for student loans to assist in paying this net price; however, student loans do have to be repaid.
Please Note: The estimates above apply to full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students only. http://salemu.edu/financial-aid/
The tuition and fees charges are based on students attending 12 credit hours each semester. If a student is enrolled in 15 credit hours each semester, the tuition and fees will be $17,700 for an academic year.
These estimates do not represent a final determination, or actual award, of financial assistance or a final net price; they are only estimates based on cost of attendance and financial aid provided to students in 2014-15. Cost of attendance and financial aid availability change year to year. These estimates shall not be binding on the Secretary of Education, the institution of higher education, or the State.
Not all students receive financial aid. In 2014-15, 92% of our full-time students enrolling for college for the first time received grant/scholarship aid. Students may also be eligible for student loans and work-study. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to determine their eligibility for Federal financial aid that includes Federal grant, loan, or work-study assistance. For more information on applying for Federal student aid, go to http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/.

Military personnel, veterans and others earn credit for their training that has ACE-recommended credits, as shown on their official military transcripts. Salem advisors will guide students through the Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) process to build a portfolio of relevant prior learning experiences that may qualify for credit, including CEUs, professional licenses, academic or professional certificates, on-the-job training, and challenge exams.
