Tuition & Fees


The tuition, fees and other expenses for Suffolk University at our Boston Campus are outlined both for incoming first-year and transfer students. While tuition, fees and University sponsored housing will be charged by Suffolk, the other expenses listed here are to help you plan for other costs associated with enrollment. They will not be charged by Suffolk University directly.

For a more detailed breakdown of these and other charges, such as dining plans and specific housing costs, see the Undergraduate Tuition & Fees page.

The chart here represents the annual cost for a new full-time undergraduate student enrolling in the fall semester and continuing as a full-time student in the spring semester.

A full-time student is registered between 12-17 credits per semester. Students pay the same flat tuition rate when they are enrolled in 12 up to and including 17 credits. Students who enroll in fewer than 12 or greater than 17 credits will be charged at a per credit rate.
