Tuition & Fees

Tuition

The tuition and fee charges to attend Manhattan College vary for all of our different types of students:

  • Undergraduate Tuition & Fees

    Manhattan College establishes a full cost of attendance (COA) budget that includes tuition, fees, room and board, books, transportation and personal/miscellaneous expenses. Students are only billed for tuition and fees and the cost of on-campus residency, but the other expenses are calculated into the student expense budget for the purpose of establishing need and awarding aid.
