Cost of a Degree

When considering ability to pay for college, the annual cost is often discussed but it's the "all in" multi-year degree cost which matters in the end. Let's take a look at what it could really cost for four years at Berkeley College New York.

Estimated 4 Year Cost at Published Tuition

At the current published rates, an estimated total tuition, fees and living expense price for a 4 year bachelor's degree at Berkeley College NYC Campus is $127,600 for students graduating in normal time. This methodology for estimating the 4 year cost is a straight multiple of the most recent reported annual total cost and does not factor in tuition increases during the time you're in school. It also assumes you receive no grant or scholarship aid and pay the full list price.

A potentially more accurate but less conservative estimate of a degree cost can be made by using the school's annual $21,802 in-state net price as the basis. Applying this cost over 4 would estimate the cost of a degree at $87,208**

If you end up on the "five year plan" and need an additional year to graduate, your five year cost could be as high as $159,500 or $109,010 using an average net price.

**Based on a 4 year multiple of Average Annual Net Price for students receiving grant or scholarship aid reported to the U.S. Department of Education's 2014-2015 IPEDS Survey. Financial aid is only available to those who qualify. Consult this school's net price calculator for further understanding of your potential net price.

Example Loan Payments and Costs

How much are student loan payments for Berkeley College New York? Obviously this varies based on a number of factors - offsetting financial aid you receive, percentage of fee you pay upfront while enrolled and the interest rate on your loans.

The following are the costs for a loan if you borrowed $87,208, 100% of the estimated average net price for a four year program and paid nothing while enrolled.
