Nichols College is committed to helping students afford and understand college tuition. If you’re looking for a complete breakdown of the fees and costs associated with attending college, you’ve come to the right place. Here you can find resources that lay out the cost of living at Nichols, lab and course fees, tuition, and more.
Your potential is what we believe in—and invest in. It’s why we made the decision to freeze tuition at the 2015-2016 level and why the cost of attendance has only been raised less than 1% in the past 5 years. Additionally, Nichols is providing more aid than ever before. In fact, once you add up all funding sources, you may find that we cost a lot less than you think.
