UMass Dartmouth Tuition and Fees

What's new this fall???

Tuition Retention

What does this mean?

• Restructure of mandatory tuition and fees
• Simpler bill for our students
• Tuition Waivers will now be called Tuition credits and the dollar  value will remain the same as AY15-16.

Below is the new vs old tuition and fee structure(illustrated using AY15-16 rates) for undergraduate students:


Senior Citizen Tuition Credit

Senior Citizen Tuition Credit provides up to $708.50 toward tuition per semester for Massachusetts residents taking undergraduate courses, and up to $1,035.50 for those taking graduate level courses. You must be 60 years of age and a Massachusetts resident for at least one year to be eligible for the credit. Proof of age and residency is required. Tuition Credit Application forms are available at the University Enrollment Center.

Undergraduate and Graduate Rates

Undergraduate tuition and fees are based on an assumption of full-time status (12 or more credits). If you are taking fewer than 12 credits, the charges can be prorated.  Please contact the University Enrollment Center for the correct charges. Graduate and non-degree tuition and fees are based on actual course registration.
