Estimated Tuition and Expenses

Graduate students pay tuition at the following (Fall 2011) rates: residents of Massachusetts — $110 per credit hour up to $1,320 per semester; “regional students” — $192.50 per credit hour up to $2,310 per semester; nonresidents — $414 per credit hour up to $4,968.50 per semester.

In order to enroll as a Massachusetts resident for tuition and fee purposes, a student must have on file a Residency Statement. Students originally classified as nonresident who believe they have met the residency requirements may appeal their classification before the beginning of the semester. Forms are available from the Graduate School.
