Estimate My Bill

Estimated Costs

Estimated costs for the academic year can be found in the Billing section

All of your financial aid will be credited to your university account by semester, as shown on your award notice (with the exception of the Federal Work Study award, which is funding that is earned and paid to students on a weekly basis). Also credited to your university bill will be the amount of your Admissions deposit. Please also note that a federal fee will be deducted from any Federal Direct (1.066%) or PLUS Loan (4.264%) you borrow. For more on the Federal Direct Loan and PLUS Loan application process please visit the Loans section.

Health Insurance is mandatory in the state of Massachusetts, and the fee will be approximately $2,500 for the 2017-2018 academic year, charged in the first semester. You can have this fee waived if you are already covered by another health plan. You will receive instructions for waiving this fee from Health and Wellness during the summer.

A late fee is assessed on all unpaid balances. For more details about billing (such as the billing address, methods of payment and late fees), visit the Billing section.

An allowance for books, supplies and personal expenses (estimated at $2,200/year) is added to the Financial Services budget, as is an allowance for transportation, which varies by home state. The total estimated budget used by Financial Services for 2017-2018 is $70,600 (plus estimated out-of-pocket transportation cost, if applicable).  It is $62,500 for students who commute from home.
