Talk about sticker shock.

Three private colleges in Massachusetts will cost more than $90,000 to attend during the 2024-2025 school year.

The three schools in question are Boston University, Tufts University, and Wellesley College. When adding up their tuition, housing, and fees, their total cost will exceed $90,000.

The projected cost of attending Tufts University for the 2024-2025 school year is $95,888, according to the school’s web site. That’s a 7 percent cost increase compared to the 2023-2024 school year ($89,584). 

Turfts University is a private university in Medford, Massachusetts. It serves about 12,000 students and has a 10.1 percent acceptance rate.

Wellesley College will cost a projected $94,110 to attend next school year when factoring in all of the costs, according to the school’s web site. That’s an 11.1 percent cost increase compared to the 2023-2024 school year ($86,290).

Wellesley College is a private college in Wellesley, Massachusetts, that admits those who identify as women, whether they are biologically male or female. However, it does not admit females who identify as men or males who identify as men, according to the school’s web site. Nearly 2,500 students attend the college, which has a 14 percent acceptance rate.

To the east, the projected cost to attend Boston University next school year is $93,487 when considering all factors, the school’s web site said. However, this figure marks the lowest price increase of the three aforementioned schools; B.U. is hiking its cost of attendance by 4.7 percent compared to the current school year ($89,322)

Boston University is a private college in the Fenway-Kenmore neighborhood of Boston. It serves 36,729 students and has a 10.7 percent acceptance rate.

NBC 10 Boston was first to report the price tags exceeding $90,000 at these respective colleges earlier this week. However, the station’s report excluded some costs associated with attending these schools, like books and the school’s health insurance plans.

Press spokesmen for Boston University, Tufts Univeristy, and Wellesley College could not be reached for comment on Thursday or Friday.
