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

3.51 Average Rating
Wentworth has the laptop program which is a huge upside. The cost is built into the tuition and the laptop is fully loaded with the programs you will need throughout your studies. After 2 years you get an upgraded laptop, so your up-to-date with all your software. The Professors and staff on campus are friendly and very understanding.
Danielle from Atkinson, NH
At Wentworth, students get the full experience. You get all of the basic knowledge for your major along with hands on experience. Once a student is farther into their studies, Wentworth has a phenomenal co-op program that builds your resume and experience as well.
Steph from Halifax, MA
For the tuition price that wentworth makes people pay you cannot go wrong. As long as you try in school you will be able to get the degree and education that you desire.
Pascal from Revere, MA
Wentworth is a great school. Between the CO-OP experience, numerous clubs, inclusive environment, and the friendly students around campus, Wentworth proves itself to be one of the best colleges of Boston. There is no wonder why 99% Wentworth graduates are in their career field or in a graduate program within six months of graduation.
Connor from Haverhill, MA
Wenworth may be expensive but living in a college city is extremely worth it. There are even opportunities to live off campus in order to make affording the college cheaper.
Allison from West Greenwich, RI
Wentworth is definitely not a cheap school to attend, but the education is worth the hole in your pocket. With a reported 97% job-placement rate over the past years, Wentworth has made a name for itself. It is a very serious school, and if you are willing to apply yourself and empty most of your wallet, you will be proud to call yourself a Wentworth student. Apply for as many scholarships and grants as you can though; every little bit of assistance will make your journey a little less stressful!
Billy from Newmarket, NH
Tuition is so low compare to other schools. On top of that you get a laptop. The school is really trying to be on the forefront with technology by having laptop and haing professor use email and other tools. You also get the programs you need for your major for free though the schools datbase. What is the best in that Wentworth is part of the colleges of the fenway. this means if you want to take a class that is not offered at wentworth, you can take it at another school.
Esther from Attleboro, MA
The laptop program prevents you from having to go out and add a new laptop to the expense of college. Students in Architecture and Interior Design majors get a MacBook Pro everyone else gets a PC. Junior year they replace the laptops with newer updated ones, and if you continue to grad school they replace it again (which i strongly recommend for architecture majors because if you continue here it is a one year masters program that would be two years anywhere else). These laptops come fully loaded with all of the programs you will need for class. There are also many activities to do around campus and plenty of free giveaways and raffles.
Toby from East Brunswick, NJ
This college has a great reputation and it is certainly affordable as a private school. The co-op program is well respected and what the school is known for.
Stanislav from South Easton, MA
There are plenty of clubs at this school and if you cant find one that you like your more than welcome to create one. The school is in the middle of Boston as well so there is plenty that you can do.
