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

3.68 Average Rating
It is quite pricey, but to live in Boston and get a great education I would say it is affordable with financial aid and scholarships. Suffolk was extrememly generous when awarding scholarships for great grades! So work hard !
Desiree from Beverly, MA
Even though it's not cheap it's very affordable for a private university. There are so many scholarships and financial aid that is available. If it's your dream school don't give up because of the expense, Suffolk can make it happen!
Ashley from Everett, MA
This school offers good scholarships and grants for those who work for them. The dorms as I mentioned before are high tech and beautiful, and the view will take your breath away (over the Common)! The food is really nice but the drinks are expensive. The education you are getting here at Suffolk is well worth the money spent! You will learn a lot more from being in a small class then you would from a lecture hall!
Kelsey from, MA
They offer a lot of financial aid, plus merit scholarships. They try to be as generous as they can be. If you're lucky, you can get the $35,000 Deans scholarship which they just give you, you don't enter anything, plus financial aid and be walking out scott free. No matter what, you will always end up getting some scholarship though.
Eric from Boston, MA
Suffolk University is rather expensive but, what they try and give you is a first class experience. They help you from start to finish and even after you leave them.
