University of Rochester Sets Tuition Rates for 2010-11

March 21, 2010

Tuition, room, and board for undergraduates in the College of the University of Rochester will increase 4.18 percent to $51,120 for the 2010-11 academic year.

Tuition will rise 4.25 percent from $37,870 to $39,480 for the coming year with the cost of the most common combined room and board plans increasing 3.93 percent from $11,200 to $11,640. The new tuition rate for undergraduates at the Eastman School of Music also will reflect a 4.25 percent increase to $39,480.

"We have vigorously controlled our expenditures while increasing financial aid for our students during a challenging time," said University President Joel Seligman.

Expenditures on financial aid for undergraduates in the College are expected to grow by more than $3.5 million for a total of $75 million.

The optional student health insurance plan has added prescription drug coverage for the coming year, and the increased premium will be offset somewhat by a second consecutive reduction in the mandatory health fee.

At the University's professional schools, the rates for 2010-11 are: $41,400 for the School of Medicine and Dentistry, a 4.28 percent increase; $51,330 for three semesters at the School of Nursing, a 2.68 percent increase; $43,020 for the William E. Simon Graduate School of Business Administration, a 4.98 percent increase; and $35,620 for the Margaret Warner Graduate School of Education and Human Development, a 4 percent increase.

The University Board of Trustees approved tuition rates for all schools at its March 12 meeting.
