Commuter students

Balance all your commitments as a commuter student.

Not everyone lives on campus or attends college full time. For some students, living at home and commuting to campus is the option that makes pursuing a degree possible.

  • Save money on room and board costs
  • Balance personal or family commitments with your education
  • Continue working while you pursue your degree

At Nichols, if you’re commuting, you can still have a full college experience and participate in campus life. With a commuter meal plan, you’ll enjoy the convenience and connection of dining with friends on campus. And, along with all of our athletics and student activities, the Commuter Council offers special social events and activities to bring commuters and residents together. All Nichols commuters are encouraged to participate.

The Fels Commuter Scholarship is renewable for three years, for a total value of $20,000. To be considered, students must be accepted to the College and file a FAFSA application for financial aid.
