Explanation of Tuition and Fees

Day Tuition
The Board of higher Education sets Day Tuition rates for each of the public colleges in Massachusetts. Each individual college bills the students and when collected, it is remitted to the Commonwealth as a general-purpose revenue. The Commonwealth appropriates maintenance funding to each campus to subsidize the cost of education for day students.

All College Fee
Local Boards of Trustees do not have tuition rate setting abilities, they do however have the ability to establish and set fees. The Board of Trustees of MassBay has established the All College Fee which pays for most of the general educational and administrative costs to operate the college. This fee also includes an allocation that helps to fund student activities.

Course/Lab Fee
Course/Lab fees help the College to defray part of the additional costs that are associated with expensive laboratory, clinical and/or technical intensive programs.

Technology Fee
This fee helps to cover the general technology available for general student-use labs, classrooms, and administrative computing.

Student Health Insurance (waivable)
Massachusetts State Law requires health insurance for all students carrying nine (9) or more credit hours. Health insurance is mandatory for all students in the Health Profession Programs regardless of the number of credits taken. Students who have their own health insurance can waive the fee by completing the online waiver form. The link is located on Bay Navigator in the Self Service, Campus Finances section.
