Notes:
Tuition, fees, room and meal plan charges are determined by the Alfred University Board of Trustees. Over the past several years annual tuition and fee increases have been in the 3% range, and room and meal plan increases have been in the 0-2% range. Tuition, fees, and room charges are actual for 2016-17. Meal plans are estimated. However, final meal plan cost will be very close.
