Cost of Attendance Calculator
The calculator is designed to estimate the costs of a full academic year.
UPDATE: All figures, including tuition, have been updated to represent the cost of attendance for the 2017-2018 academic year.
The estimated Cost of Attendance is provided as a guide. The University reserves the right to change its charges at any time.
The cost of attendance includes necessary expenses for a student enrolled in graduate school. These are fixed costs, estimates of living expenses, transportation, books, and health insurance. Each year this budget is revised due to the changes in tuition, living expenses, books, supplies, and other miscellaneous expenses. Living expenses are based on the Bureau of Labor Statistics moderate cost of living budget for the Boston area.
Your award letter, sent at the time of admission, details your financial assistance, if any, from the University. For information on loan eligibility please contact Peggy Higgins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Full-time tuition (pro-rated) is billed per semester, and scholarships and/or loans are credited in the same manner. Fellowships and summer assistantships are distributed on a semi-monthly basis directly to the student. Fall semester bills are due in early August and spring semester bills are due in early January.
*Post-resident fee and extended master's fee: Students who complete their residency requirement, but not their degree requirements, are eligible for the post-resident fee (PhD students) or the extended master's fee (master's students), a very significantly reduced tuition, for as many semesters needed to complete the degree requirements, not to exceed published time to degree limits. In some cases, partial tuition waivers are available--please contact Peggy Higgins at email@example.com for more information on the fee waiver amounts and eligibility.
