Cost of Attendance 2021-22

Each aid applicant is assigned a cost of attendance which is an estimate of all costs associated with enrollment.

The cost of attendance is determined by a combination of factors, including enrollment, housing plans, and dependency status. The cost of attendance includes charges for tuition and fees which are directly billed by the University, as well as indirect costs such as transportation and books. Indirect costs are the student's responsibility and do not appear on the University's tuition bill.

Be sure to consider all costs, both direct and indirect, when you make your financial plan. Please be advised that tuition normally increases annually.

All costs shown are estimates. Your actual costs may be different.

Some or all instruction for all or part of the Academic Year may be delivered remotely. Tuition and mandatory fees have been set regardless of the method of instruction and will not be refunded in the event instruction occurs remotely for any part of the Academic Year.

Suffolk University assumes no liability for the delay or failure in providing educational or other services or facilities due to causes beyond its reasonable control. Causes include, but are not limited to power failure, fire, strikes by University employees or others, damage by natural elements, public health crises, and acts of public authorities. The University will, however, exert reasonable efforts, when it judges them to be appropriate, to provide comparable services, facilities, or performance; but its inability or failure to do so shall not subject the University to liability.
