Invest in yourself. Affordable education for a brighter future.

Investing in education is an investment in your future and we want that investment to be as affordable as possible. If you truly want to change your life and your career for the better, we want to give you the chance to do so without money being an obstacle.

Baker College has the lowest tuition of any private college in Michigan. As a non-profit college, we’re not focused on turning a profit for shareholders -- we’re invested in you. Being a non-profit allows us to keep our tuition down and lets us focus on creating the best experience possible for our students through things like high-tech equipment for classrooms and labs, free tutoring services, and lifetime career services.  

We also believe in keeping things simple. Unlike other colleges and universities, we don’t have any extra fees or hidden costs. No need to worry about being hit with a bill that’s much bigger than you expected. If you have any more questions about tuition at Baker College, contact your campus OneStop Advisor and they’ll help you through the entire process.

Books and Supplies

 In addition to tuition and fees, students will have expenses for books and supplies. Some programs require additional items such as uniforms, kits, and program-specific supplies. For detailed information about these additional expenses, please contact the Admissions or OneStop Office.

Student Housing Costs

Student housing is available at our Cadillac, Flint, Muskegon, Owosso, and Port Huron campuses. The rate for all housing options is $2000 per semester; however, the rate may vary based on occupancy. There is a non-refundable $50 fee due when an application for campus housing is submitted.

Estimated food costs are an additional $800 per semester. If for any reason a student leaves during a semester, there will be no refund of room fees for that semester.
