Tuition rates across the country have been going up, but there are still bargains to be found here in Boston. You will find tuitions to be low or at least moderate at the following colleges.

Please note, that published tuitions are not necessarily what you may pay because many colleges offer generous financial aid. A good starting point to estimate the actual cost of a college is the Net Price, which reflects the average cost to students after deducting financial aid and grants. For the colleges below, you will be able to see the Net Price by clicking on the name of the college.
