Undergraduate Tuition

All colleges are not the same.

A degree from colleges like Springfield means so much more! Choose a college that’s clearly a cut above the rest so that you can be a cut above the rest.

How is Springfield a cut above other colleges?

  • Close to 70% of our students graduate in four years, compared to 40% as a national average at schools in our category**.
  • 87% of our students come back for their second-year*, compared to 73% at other private colleges and 70% for public colleges**.
  • 98% of our graduates go on to find employment or enroll in graduate schools within six months of graduation*, compared to 84% at other private colleges and 73% for public colleges according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers. 

Springfield College is undoubtedly worth the cost, even if it means possibly costing more. 

However, we do work to try and make it affordable:

  • 100% of new students who complete the FAFSA receive financial aid to attend***.
  • Our average financial aid package is $34,736***.

Students from all over the country and across the globe have invested their futures in Springfield College. We will not let them down, and we will not let you down either.
