Quality that’s Affordable is a Smart Investment

The UMass Lowell experience is an exceptional value in higher education—a high-quality education that’s affordable. Our graduates are trusted by employers and graduate schools alike because they are thoroughly prepared here by challenging academics and through significant learning experiences outside the classroom. And without the burden of large student debts, they have more choices right out of college than many of their peers. 

The university’s commitment to affordability includes reasonably-priced tuition and fees that total about one half of those at comparable private institutions as well as a wide range of scholarships, financial aid and paid internships on campus. Last year, the university awarded more than $160 million in financial aid. Reduced tuition programs are available to qualifying students.
