Tuition and Fees

Simmons University is committed to providing a quality education for our students. We work with students and their families to help manage the cost of higher education.

Simmons University reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify its educational, housing, extracurricular, and other programs at any time, including, providing courses remotely and/or online. The transition of a course, activity, and/or services from an in-person format to an online, hybrid, and/or other format will not result in a tuition refund or the refund of other fees. For information on whether Room/Board fees will be refunded in the event the University requires students to vacate University Housing based on health and safety concerns, please review the University’s Housing License Agreement and all attendant addendums.

Below you will find information on tuition, fee and housing rates for undergraduate students.
