Tuition and Fees
As you prepare to budget for your 2016/2017 academic year educational expenses, you will find some costs easier to predict than others. Tuition, fees, room, and board are established by the University. You will also need money for books, supplies, personal expenses, and transportation. To help you estimate, listed here are the costs for the 2015/2016 academic year, which include billed expenses (tuition, fees, room and board) as well as estimates for other expenses. Costs for students matriculating in September 2016 will be released in March.

Mandatory Health Insurance
Massachusetts law requires all students enrolled in at least 75% of the full-time curriculum to have medical insurance. Students who cannot demonstrate coverage under a qualifying medical insurance plan are required to purchase the University’s student health insurance plan, which is due and payable with your first-semester charges. For more information, see the Student Accounting Services website.
