Summer Tuition Rates

Siena College's normal undergraduate tuition rate for a 3 credit course is $1500, and the cost of a 4 credit course is $2000 plus any additional lab fees.

Under the "TAKE TWO" Campaign for Summer 2015 - The cost of the first undergraduate 3 credit course is $1250. The second 3 credit course cost is $750. Total cost for two 3 credit courses is $2000 (You save $1000 off of normal tuition rates). Siena College also will allow you to take a third 3 credit course for an additional $750.

NOTE: Taking 3 courses will put you at the 9 credit hour limit. It is imperative that you understand that if you reach 12 credits in courses, you will be considered a full-time student, and at that point, FULL-TIME tuition rates will apply. To take advantage of the Summer at Siena lower tuition rates you must stay between 3 and 11 credits. 

NOTE: A 4 Credit Course (which contains a Lab) will cost $1650 under the “Take Two” Campaign, plus any additional lab fees. Any additional 3 credit course taken with a 4 credit course would be an additional $750. (Again, you cannot exceed 11 credits, or you would pay the Full-Time tuition rate.) If you wish to take two 4 credit courses during the Summer, the Business Affairs Office will set a rate at that time.

HIGH SCHOOL SCHOLARS PROGRAM: The High School Scholars tuition rate is a flat $750 per course. The $750 rate applies to 3 and 4 credit courses for High School Scholars.

NOTE: Taking 3 courses will put you at the 9 credit hour limit for the High School Scholars flat tuition rate. It is imperative that you understand that if you exceed 11 credits, you will be considered a full-time student, and at that point, FULL-TIME tuition rates will apply. In other words, you must be a part-time student to take advantage of the High School Scholars flat tuition rate (you must stay between 3 credits and 11 credits).

Please Note: If you sign up for a summer course and fail to formally withdraw, you may be held liable for all or a portion of the tuition fee for that course. You will find the Official Withdrawal Form for Siena College at:
