Term bills are prepared one month prior to each terms due date. Fall Term fees are due August 15, Winter Term fees are due December 15, and Spring Term Fees are due March 15.

Payment is due on the term due date. Payment MUST be received prior to the start of each term. If payment is not received prior to the start of each term, the student’s account will be put on hold for Registration (including Drop/Add) and Transcript Requests.

The comprehensive fee for the 2024-2025 year is $86,478.00. This includes tuition, Carleton Student Association (CSA) activity fee, art fee, and food plan. The comprehensive fee does not include music fees.

The tuition charged to students represents only two-thirds of the educational costs per student. The other one-third is funded by income from our endowment, which has been built by the gifts of former generations and the annual fund which is supported each year by our alumni and parents. The combination of these sources creates a balanced budget with continuing growth in our academic programs.
