The full cost for the program is broken up into tuition and room and board.

Tuition for Psychology Majors

Tuition covers the cost of your classes. For the 2021-2022 school year, the tuition for undergraduate students taking 12 to 17 credits is $47,808.00, (including a $100/semester student activity fee). Students who take fewer than 12 credits, pay $1,596 per credit. (Students must be approved by the Office of Academic Services & Advising to take fewer than 12 credits in a semester.)

Room and Board for Psychology Majors

Room and Board is another way of saying where you live and what you eat. The cost for Room and Board during the 2021-2022 school year is $8,467 per semester. That amount breaks down to $7,092 for room and $1,375 for the meal plan.

At Stonehill, about 81% of students live on campus. The great part about living on campus is that it gives you the chance to meet students from all over the United States and around the world. You’ll be able to learn more about yourself as you come to know people from different backgrounds and cultural experiences — and that will help you grow and prepare you for life after college.

There are different types of rooming situations at Stonehill. From traditional corridor-style halls to suites, townhouses and single-gender residence halls, there are options to suit nearly everyone's needs.

All of our residence halls are staffed by live-in professional Residence Directors (RDs) and paraprofessional Resident Assistants (RAs). Our trained RAs can help with almost every situation. They are closeby if you are having difficulties, need information, have an idea for a hall activity or just want to talk. Stonehill RAs want to get to know you and help you make the most of your on-campus experience.

When do I pay tuition and room & board?

A bill will be sent twice a year. Half the annual costs for tuition, room and board are billed prior to the start of each semester.

The fall bill is emailed in early July and payment is due by August 1.

The spring bill is emailed in early December and payment is due by January 2.

The knowledge I gained from my psych classes at Stonehill helped make the learning process at Women & Infants much quicker and easier. Already being familiar with the basics allowed for a smooth transition … I was able to really jump right in.

What about financial aid?

The cost of a four-year college is expensive, but it’s important to know that most students do not pay the full amount. That’s because Stonehill has a generous financial aid program, and 98% of enrolled students receive some type of financial aid. 

In fact, during the 2021-2022 school year, Stonehill awarded a total of $85 million in financial aid. The average aid award for that year was $35,957 and consisted of scholarships, grants, loans and work-study. Among students eligible for need-based financial aid, 95% of need was met in 2021-2022 and of those students, 71% had 100% of their need met.

Program Outcomes

Higher education is an investment in your future — in the skills you will need to make a difference in the world. Of Stonehill graduates over the past four years, 90 percent of Stonehill alumni who graduated in the past four years are employed, in top graduate programs, or engaged in postgraduate service within six months of graduating. A liberal arts education is an investment worth thinking about.

The faculty in the Psychology Department fosters a learning community that promotes student success. The professors’ doors are always open to answer questions, discuss course material or give guidance.
