Tuition and Fees - Costs of Attendance

You are here

The first step in seeking financial aid is filling out FAFSA, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid  administered by the U.S. Department of Education.

Within a few days of submitting the FAFSA you will receive your Student Aid Report or SAR. The SAR summarizes all the information you submitted on the FAFSA. On your SAR you will see reference to your EFC or Expected Family Contribution. You do not have to actually contribute that amount - this number is used to determine your eligibility for Federal and State assistance. 

To figure out your Financial Need and the amount of aid you can receive, we take the Expected Family Contribution from your SAR and subtract it from the Cost of Attendance at Northeastern.

Cost of Attendance - Expected Family Contribution = Financial Need

Based on the Expected Family Contribution calculation from the Student Aid Report, an award offer will be mailed to NEW students and an award offer will be reflected on NEIUport under Financial Aid Awards for ALL students.

Estimated Cost of Attendance for the 2016-2017 Award Year

The Financial Aid Office annually prepares estimated costs of attendance budgets, which reflects maximum educational-related costs allowed in the calculation of financial need. The cost of attendance reflects minimum full-time costs for 9 months (Fall 2016 and Spring 2017) for undergraduate and graduate students. Please note that if you fit certain income parameters, you may receive a reduced budget. In this case, you should contact the Financial Aid Office since budget adjustments can be considered with appropriate documentation.

  • Fall 2015 Average Tuition Cost - $3,864 ($322/credit hour @12 credit hours)
  • Fall 2015 Average Fees - $1,450 (including health insurance at current rates)
