    What Does This Do?

    This tool estimates your cost to attend a UMass campus (Amherst, Boston, Dartmouth or Lowell) as an undergraduate student. The estimate is based on data from UMass students with similar financial and academic backgrounds.

    Who is This For?

    This tool is specifically for dependent, first-time undergraduates and transfer students who live in Massachusetts. We offer resources for out-of-state and international students.

    How Does It Work?

    Based on your answers to some basic questions, the calculator will estimate your cost. This is an estimate only. It is not a guarantee of financial aid. The process should take about 3 minutes. You will have the opportunity to generate estimates for each UMass campus without having to re-enter your information.

    Financial Information and Privacy

    You might want to have a parent or guardian nearby to get some rough estimates of their basic finances. You will not be asked for personally identifiable information. The information you enter in this calculator will remain anonymous.
