Amherst College

Amherst, MA
Save School
Tuition & Aid
Bottom line

Annual tuition, fees, and room and board cost roughly $56,000 at Amherst. Once you consider books, supplies, personal expenses, and transportation, you can expect to spend anywhere from $58,000 to $60,000 per year. In the end, you’ll get much more than what you pay for. The school meets 100 percent of its student body’s demonstrated need without loans, and those who choose to take them out graduate with little debt (relative to the indebtedness of graduates of many similar schools). Students feel it is “hard to find somewhere better” and believe Amherst is “the best of the small, elite New England colleges.”
