As for graduate students, those at UMass Law (which is also located in Dartmouth) will see their tuition increase by 2% — but other Dartmouth-based graduate students will not see their tuition go up.

This means an in-state UMD undergraduate student next year will be paying $15,208 in tuition, while an in-state UMass Law student will pay $30,765.

Meanwhile the cost of room and board at UMass Dartmouth is also set to rise, by 2.5% for housing and by 3% for on-campus dining options.


Tuition and other costs at UMass Dartmouth went up last year as well.

Undergraduates paid on average 2.5% more this academic year than the year before — the first time tuition went up in two years.

Meanwhile room and board went up between 1.9 and 3.9% last year.

This year's increases are comparable to those at other UMass campuses in Boston and Lowell, according to State House News Service — but UMass Amherst students will see their room and board costs go up by 4.5% next year.
