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

3.53 Average Rating
I chose this school at first because they were the best with financial aid and really made my goal of attending college possible. The financial aid office will work with those who may be confused and need a little help as well.
female from Brockton, MA
You graded this without a comment. From all of my college research, this is the best priced out of state school I could find. You'll learn alot here, especially if you're going for business or law
Rachael from Rome, NY
This is a very affordable school, and I feel like I'm getting a great education here. You really get what you put in here. A lot people can disagree, but this school has everything you need to advance in a lot of different careers. The only thing different you get from going to a much more expensive school is a piece of paper. In the end, you learned the same things, and are just as good as they are.
Jason from New Bedford, MA
Some of the staff could definitely belong at a higher paying and therefore higher cost of the student school. Many of the professors genuinely care about the benefit of their students, and want them to all do well.
Andrew from Taunton, MA
For a state school this place is really cheap and there are a lot of merit based scholarships that you automatically qualify for once you're accepted. I got a crap ton of them and my GPA was only 2.6! Professors are beyond helpful, food is crappy at the Res but great at the other places, freshmen dorms are a lot bigger than you think and most people are friendly.
