Here’s what you need to know about how New England Tech charges for tuition:

Once you enroll, your tuition won’t change (see Detail #1 below). New England Tech’s tuition is the lowest tuition of any private college in Rhode Island (see Detail #2 below).

The Details

Detail #1

The tuition for the entire degree program at New England Institute of Technology is clearly specified and fixed at the time of the student’s enrollment, a practice that is unlike how tuition is assessed at most other colleges.

At the time of enrollment, a student has the option of enrolling in either an associate degree program, in both an associate degree program and a bachelor’s degree program (2+2), or directly into a bachelor’s degree program. The tuition specified in the enrollment agreement executed at the time of enrollment is the tuition the student will pay throughout his/her degree program(s).

For example, if a student enrolls to begin the associate degree in any upcoming quarter, the student will pay the current tuition rates in effect the day he/she signs the enrollment agreement. This tuition will stay in effect throughout his/her degree program.

If the same student, at the time of initial enrollment, signs up for the bachelor’s degree as well as the associate degree on a 2+2 basis, he/she will enter the bachelor’s degree program at the tuition in effect at the time of his/her original enrollment. This tuition will stay in effect throughout his/her degree program.  A student who signs up directly into a bachelor’s degree program will pay the tuition in effect for each academic year identified at the time of his/her original enrollment.

The student must remain in continuous enrollment from the time of his/her original start date to be eligible for this tuition program.

Detail #2

At this time, July, 2016, New England Tech’s tuition is the lowest of any private university in Rhode Island. Combined with our policy of not increasing your tuition that was fixed at the time of your enrollment, you will benefit for as long as you remain in attendance.
