Tuition & Aid
Bottom line

The total cost for a year of tuition, fees, and room and board at Wellesley is over $54,000. However, this school has the financial resources to provide a tremendous amount of financial aid. Your aid package is likely to be quite extensive, and students leave with just $13,500 in loan debt on average. That’s chump change for an education worth more than $200,000.
