Tuition & Fees

To start the application process, click on step #1.

The 2015-16 tuition is $14,163 (including the 10% down payment) and is determined by the Bellarmine Board of Directors in February of each year. In the last fiscal year, tuition and fees generated only 79% of the operating budget of the school; the support of parents, alumni, and the greater Tacoma community made up the cost difference of more than $3,000 for every member of the Bellarmine student body.

Bellarmine accepts cash, checks, and credit cards for tuition payments. All payments by credit card will be assessed a 2.61% surcharge.

For more information about tuition or financial aid, please contact any of the members of Bellarmine's Comptroller or Financial Aid Office. The offices are located on the first floor of Orton Hall. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. The telephone number is (253) 761-3529 and the fax number is (253) 756-3871.
