Tufts University

Tuition & Aid
Bottom line

Tufts University’s internationally renowned education does not come without a price tag. The annual tuition is close to $44,000 dollars, on top of which students can expect to pay about $14,000 dollars in room, board, fees, and supplies. However, Tufts is committed to helping students of any financial situation attend. A full 93 percent of freshman who need financial aid receive some, and overall 43 percent of students will receive some aid. Two-fifths of students will borrow to pay for tuition, and the average Tufts student will graduate with $24,468 dollars in debt. The school’s Loan Repayment Assistance Program “offers grants to graduates working in public-service jobs to help repay their student loans.”
