Fees and Financial Aid

A Nichols education isn’t just a degree—it’s the foundation for what’s ahead. Our flexible programs let you choose the course load your life and financial obligations allow, whether that’s one class or full time. And our classes are offered at one price, regardless of how you participate—in person or online in real time.

Tuition benefits
If you’re currently employed, you may want to check with your company to see if they offer tuition benefits.

Graduation fee
A mandatory fee of $150 per degree earned will be charged to all students certified for graduation, regardless of whether or not the student participates in the commencement ceremony.

Returned check fee
A $50 fee will be charged to accounts for each check that is returned to Nichols College for non-payment by the issuing bank.

Financial aid
Student Financial Services is committed to helping you. We require only one financial aid form, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). We use this information to determine your annual eligibility for federal and state need-based financial aid. You can file your FAFSA any time after January 1. File by March 1 for priority consideration. The school code is 002197.

Payment options
Please contact Student Financial Services at sfs [at] nichols [dot] edu or 508-213-2288 if you have any questions concerning tuition, fees, or payment options.
