Assumption is consistently ranked as one of the nation’s “best value” colleges by Barron’s Best Buys in College Education. The publication says Assumption provides a “first-rate education at a reasonable price,” and it highlights Assumption faculty’s devotion to helping students achieve their goals.
Cost of Attendance
The cost of attendance is used to determine your eligibility for need-based financial aid from Assumption College. It is based on the cost for a full-time Assumption undergraduate student who is enrolled in at least 4 courses (12 credits) per semester. It includes:
- Direct costs: those expenses billed directly to you from Assumption
- Indirect costs: those expenses not billed to you, but which you may incur.
If you drop below full-time or change your residency status, your cost of attendance will be recalculated, thus impacting your financial aid eligibility.
