On-Campus Undergraduate Tuition & Fees

The tuition and fee costs shown here apply to full-time, in-person study at our Rindge campus. They represent full-price costs for fall and spring semesters before financial aid:

Item Annual Cost

The contingency deposit is $100 charge assessed to each student account during the first semester of enrollment. It’s applied to any unpaid charges when a student leaves Franklin Pierce. You’ll receive a refund for any remaining balance after graduation. All Rindge undergraduates are subject to both the contingency deposit and the administrative fee.

Studying and living on campus over summer or, for education majors, completing student teaching requirements can add these tuition costs:

2020 Summer I tuition $400 per credit
2020 Summer II tuition $400 per credit

Student Financial Services reviews all student accounts for financial clearance. Accounts are considered clear if they have zero balance after payments or anticipated financial aid (including certified and in-process loans). Account balances are due July 1 for fall registration and December 1 for spring registration. You can register only once your account is clear.
