At UMass Lowell, we believe that students should have as much information as possible up front so they can make informed decisions before enrolling in a degree program or signing up for a course.
Tuition for UMass Lowell Online and Continuing Education students is the same for both in-state and out-of-state students. Tuition is priced per credit. To calculate the tuition for a course, simply multiply the per-credit tuition by the total number of credits per course.
Exception: If the total number of course contact hours is greater than the total number of credits, the per-credit tuition is instead multiplied by the total number of contact hours.

Costs for Textbooks and Additional Materials
The total cost for required textbooks for students accepted into this program will be $600-$800 (depending on whether you buy books new or used). In addition, students will need to purchase a license for access to a video library and a digital textbook for a one-time fee of $100-$200. We also encourage all students who plan to take the BCaBA exam to purchase a license for a set of learning modules that will help students not only do well in our courses but also prepare for the BCaBA exam. This license provides continued access to the modules until students pass the exam. The cost for this license is $300-$500, depending on the length of the license.
Please note: Most of these costs will be incurred up front, when students enroll in their first course. Students will, however, continue to use the basic textbook, the digital textbook and the modules in all subsequent courses as they progress through the program.
