As an access-focused public, nonprofit college, our undergraduate and graduate tuition rates are among the lowest in New England for residents and non-residents.

In fact, we’re among the Top 20 colleges in the nation with the lowest median federal debt for all students. And, we’re second lowest in New England.

Still, we recognize that affordability is about more than low tuition and fees.

It’s about providing value in unique and important ways. One measure of our success is that you graduate with lower than average indebtedness, receive expert financial aid guidance throughout your degree program, and practice effective money management skills.
