What can the most affordable private college in Illinois do for you? Give you an exceptional education with loads of personal attention and the tools and support you need to succeed! At Blackburn, you’ll find the same faculty to student ratio (11:1) of schools that cost thousands more to attend. It’s like paying state school prices for a private college experience! Our direct cost for incoming freshmen for the 2017-2018 school year is only $29,652 – including room and board!* Subtract your $5,500 work credit, and the remaining amount is just $24,152. That’s before a single grant or scholarship, and is substantially less than any other private college in the state.
