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.

Babson is a private school; tuition is expensive. Some classes seem extraneous, which makes tuition seem more expensive than it should be. What students pay for, then is the networking, and the valuable resources that Babson has to offer. There are people on campus dedicated to helping you start organizations, or businesses, etc.

Since Babson is so small, all your interactions with the various offices on campus will be very personal. This applies to Student Financial Services as well, and I just had the best experience dealing with them after I was accepted to Babson. They really try to help you out, and they treat each student individually, on a personal level. After I explained my financial situation to them, they adjusted my financial aid package significantly, and also helped my dad secure a federal parent Plus loan to cover the rest of the cost. Babson is a very very expensive school, but they will do everything they can to help you out. I should also add that Babson is rated #1 for Return on Investment. Babson offers SO many opportunities, so if you make the most of your time here, you will graduate with a significant advantage over graduates from other schools.

100% worth it. Babson provides you with connections you won't get anywhere. Alums and professors are willing to help you and connect you with whoever they can to get you into a job or internship. If you go to Babson, you're set for life!
