Financial Support for Out of State Students

Did you know that the cost of attending BSU is nearly the same or in some cases less than the cost of attending college in your own state?

The cost of tuition, fees, housing and meals for non-Massachusetts residents to attend BSU now is approximately $25,000 thanks to a $5,000 discount from a newly expanded scholarship program that all out-of-state students receive.

It was only because of the generosity of the donors that I was able to attend the National Conference for Undergraduate Research in Atlanta. It was such an incredible experience, and one that I would have missed without their support….Attending the conference encouraged me to continue to move forward with my research. It was great validation for me.”
