  • Cost accuracy depends upon user proficiency (watch the video prior to use) and the accuracy of the tuition figures used. Please check the BU Wheelock Costs & Tuition page prior to each use of this tool, taking note that Summer costs for year X are historically not available until February X. Ex. Summer 2022 costs will likely be published in February 2022.
