Tuition and Fees

The cost of a UMass Amherst education includes tuition and required fees, as well as room and board if you live on campus.  Bills will consolidate some of the mandatory fees we previously billed separately into one tuition charge.  Your tuition charge will reflect the cost of your core education and will now include the curriculum fee and other campus-wide fees. Fees for student activities, housing and dining will be listed separately.

Your Cost of Attendance will also include books and supplies, as well as personal and transportation expenses.
