Paying for College

Worcester State University is committed to the value of higher education for all students. We combine an affordable tuition and fee structure with a comprehensive financial aid program.


  • Worcester State is recognized as a “Best Value” college by the Princeton Review
  • Over 65% of students receive some form of financial assistance
  • We offer a competitive merit scholarship program to recognize new students with superior academic achievement

Our Financial Aid Office is dedicated to ensuring that every student looking to further their education and who qualifies is awarded up to their maximum eligibility from institutional, federal, state, and private sources of funding.  Financial aid includes scholarships, federal and state grants, loans and employment opportunities. In many cases, students receive a financial aid package containing a combination of these different forms of assistance. Students with exceptional academic records may also be awarded merit-based scholarships without regard to financial need.

Undergraduate Tuition and Fees (Mass. Resident): $8,157
Undergraduate Tuition and Fees (Non-Mass. Resident): $14,237
Room and Board (Average): $11,000

We recognize superior academic achievement by awarding a number of academic scholarships to incoming first-year students. Merit scholarships can provide up to full in-state tuition and fees and are awarded for a full academic year. They are renewable for full-time students who maintain a specific GPA. Applying for admission to Worcester State automatically constitutes consideration for these scholarships. No additional application is required. A limited number of merit scholarships are available, and students must meet minimum academic standards in order to be eligible. Meeting minimum academic standards does not guarantee the awarding of a merit scholarship. Additional factors beyond a student’s GPA and SAT scores are considered in the selection process.
