Northeastern To Provide Record $263.6M Investment in Financial Aid
Northeastern will provide a record $263.6 million in financial aid — not loans — for undergraduate students in 2017-2018, as part of the university’s ongoing commitment to making significant investments in financial assistance for its students.
Over the past 10 years, Northeastern has increased its investment in financial aid by 108 percent. During the past five years, through its increased investment in aid, the university has reduced the average debt among all students graduating by 40 percent.
Undergraduate tuition for the 2017-2018 academic year will be $48,560, an increase of 3.9 percent. The new tuition figure remains competitive with many of Northeastern’s peer institutions. Overall, tuition, fees, room, and board will increase 3.9 percent.
“Northeastern provides a world-class education that empowers our students to personalize their intellectual journey through real world experiences, use-inspired research, and global networks,” said Sundar Kumarasamy, vice president for enrollment management. “We are committed to making the Northeastern experience affordable for those students with the talent and the drive to earn admission to the university and pursue their goals.”
