Best Academic Value in Ohio

Cost is important when choosing an institution. Shawnee State provides one of the best educational values in Ohio and beyond. Our tuition is among the lowest in the state and is matched and exceeded by our students' academic opportunities, challenges, and potential return on their investment.

Making higher education affordable and accessible to students is one of our primary goals. In addition to low tuition, SSU awards more than $2 million in scholarships each year. Reciprocity agreements with neighboring Kentucky also makes SSU an outstanding value for residents of nearby counties including Boyd, Carter, Elliott, Fleming, Greenup, Lawrence, Lewis, Mason, and Rowan County.
