Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.82 Average Rating
There are many opportunities offered that people probably wouldn't get to experience if they weren't in college, like musical performances and guest speakers. The great thing about it is that mostly everything is free. Some examples are career services, the gym, and intramurals. Some bad things are that the Internet is not that great and my dorm is pretty old and in need of repairs.

I am not quite sure what exactly this question is asking, but I will try my best in answering. The tuition is expensive. Housing is guaranteed for all four years. The food is alright, but the employees at the cafe are eager to help. There are many clubs and activities. There are student tutors available for that Calculus exam, but beware you must come prepared. There are free services that would otherwise cost a fortune such as counseling and even career help. When I applied to AC, the percentage of students who had a job before they graduated was 97%. I am not sure what they are now, but at the Career Center they work hard with and for you. hmm... College really is all what you make of it. If you are not enjoying yourself at a certain college and you have tried everything to change that maybe that college is not the right fit for you after all. At AC, its your experience everyone there is eager to help. YOU have to make the moves. The faculty says something like that too. Another reason why I decided not to transfer.

Assumption is very good about giving scholarships. They have need based scholarships as well as merit scholarships. Many school do not give as many merit scholarships as Assumption.
Anne from New Ipswich, NH
In all honesty, Assumption takes some time to get used to. If you came from a big high school, it will be culture shock, so be prepared for that. I found that a lot of the aspects of high school were carried on into college during my Freshman year. But overall, you will makes some great friends and you will learn a lot.
I do believe Assumption gives you what you pay for. The classrooms, for the most part, are beautiful and enriched with MAC computers. The professors have been some of the best I have ever had. The upperclassmen dorms are beautiful and worth every penny spent. I believe you get the best bang for your buck here.
Kathryn from Worcester, MA
It's expensive but worth it. I would've never survived at a state university. Assumption is small and cozy but just big enough to get away from the people you don't want to see. The professors are a saving grace there, they're awesome.
