Cost of Attendance Calculator
The calculator is designed to estimate the costs of a full academic year.
The following information has been updated for the 2021-2022 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, 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 Monique Howell at email@example.com.
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 August and spring semester bills are due in December. For the full billing schedule, please refer to the Student Financial Services website.
*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. Post-resident students are eligible for as many semesters needed to complete the degree requirements, not to exceed published time to degree limits. Extended Master's students are eligible for up to two semesters. In some cases, partial tuition waivers are available--please contact Monique Howell at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the fee waiver amounts and eligibility.
