Lasell Works: Year by Year

Students not only benefit from the added learning experience but tuition costs go down each of the student's four years, a potential four year savings of $22,000 to $38,000.

Year One:
Commuter Cost: $36,000 minus financial aid
Resident Cost: $36,000 plus Room and Board minus financial aid

Students live on or off campus and take their major courses and two cohort based seminars. The Lasell Works First Year Seminar, a signature foundational experience, engages students in an academic topic related to the world of work while developing the relationships important to cohort learning. In the spring, the second Lasell Works Seminar (LWS) equips students with strategic on-line learning techniques as they prepare for the sophomore year living and studying away from campus.

Year Two: 
Cost: $32,000 minus financial aid (no Room and Board charge, students live off campus)
Lasell Works students live off-campus and courses are provided on-line. Students maintain part-time employment, which is linked to a professional development seminar, earning income and credit at the same time. Course options include data analytics, social media for business, effective speaking, organizational behavior, marketing, global literature, leadership and others. Students may continue participation in clubs and campus events if they choose to do so.

Year Three: 
Commuter Cost: $28,000 minus financial aid
Resident Cost: $28,000 plus Room and Board minus financial aid

Students engage further in their major degree courses and participate in a Leadership Development Seminar, exploring leadership models, their own leadership style and reflecting on the connections between leadership, professionalism, and organizational communication. With proper planning, students may also opt to study abroad using the College's home tuition model.

Year Four:  
Commuter Cost: $26,000 minus financial aid
Resident Cost: $26,000 plus Room and Board minus financial aid

Students complete their degree requirements in their major course of study and participate in the culminating professional development seminar, which focuses on financial literacy and developing personal financial goals for life.
