Tuition, Costs, and Financial Aid
Unity College moves to remote learning for 2020-21 offering flexible, affordable, and accessible options!
We’ll help you find a way
to pay for the cost of tuition
Our goal is to make education affordable and manageable. We work with students during the recruitment process to help plan and find ways to pay for their degree.
Hybrid Learning is offered under a non-standard academic calendar, comprised of eight 5-week terms. Each term is considered a stand-alone period of attendance and financial aid is awarded by term. A student who takes one 3-credit course is considered full-time for that term. A student may attend or stop out any term, which allows for a flexible educational experience.
Use our net price calculator to estimate both the cost of attending Unity College and the financial aid for which you might qualify.
Hybrid Learning courses delivered online cost $470 per credit hour. Hybrid Learning courses delivered face-to-face cost $550 per credit hour. Books, software, hardware, and other materials are not included in the credit hour cost and must be purchased separately.
All Hybrid Learning students take a minimum of 37 credits toward their degree online.
All students pay a nonrefundable, comprehensive fee of $170 per term that covers the costs of multiple student-support services provided by Unity College. The fee provides access to all student services for the duration of a term, whether students are registered for online or face-to-face classes. This fee is not limited to, but includes services associated with student academic support, student activities, technology, wellness, fitness, and outdoor equipment.
The Comprehensive Fee does not include the annual Student Insurance Fee of $1,837, which is waived if the student is covered by another plan. It also does not include a one-time residential orientation fee ($75.00) or the one-time graduation fee ($100.00).
On-campus housing offers a unique community living experience, easy access to campus resources, and amenities such as activities, residence life support, and security, without having to sign a long-term lease. Pricing for on-campus housing is listed in the table below. Single occupancy may be requested for an additional cost and will be available on a first-come, first-served, space-available basis. Residents must abide by the Room & Board Contract and all housing policies in the Hybrid Learning Student Handbook.

Unity College’s Office of Student Financial Services is ready to help you finance your Unity College education. Your federal financial aid eligibility will be determined based on the income, asset, and household information you provide on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at fafsa.gov. Choose Unity’s College Code (006858) to ensure that the federal application data will be transmitted to the Office of Student Financial Services. Please respond promptly to requests for additional information or clarification concerning your financial aid application.
Federal Work Study Awards
Students in the Hybrid Learning will be eligible to participate in the Federal Work Study Program if the student has residential housing and is enrolled during the period of enrollment a student intends to utilize work study funds. The maximum annual award is $1400, and eligibility will be determined based on a student’s expressed interest and financial need based on FAFSA results.
Students will be billed for each term after registering for their courses, and all student accounts must be settled and any financial aid in place before the end of the add/drop period (day three of the term). Any outstanding balance will lead to automatic withdrawal from courses. Any outstanding balance must be paid prior to future enrollment.
Failure to Pay
Failure to pay bills in full when due may result in revocation of Unity College privileges, including but not limited to, issuance of grades and/or transcripts, registration for subsequent terms, participation in graduation ceremonies, and participation in registered classes and examinations. It is imperative that a student contact Student Financial Services at (207) 509- 7261 if any charges are disputed.
Hybrid Learning students who drop a course, whether they are active or not, before the end of the add/drop period are eligible for a 100% tuition refund for that course.
After midnight of the last day of add/drop, students are no longer eligible for a refund. If the delivery of a course is disrupted for any reason during a term, an alternate course delivery method may be substituted at the discretion of the institution. No tuition refunds are available for a change of delivery method during a term.
