SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Syracuse University will raise tuition 3 percent for all full-time undergraduates for the 2021-22 academic year, the school announced Friday.

When tuition, housing and meals, and other fees are factored in, the full cost to attend will range between $74,000 and $77,000, depending on if a student enrolled before or after the fall 2018 semester, per the school’s website.

The university intends to offer “fully in-person” class instruction for the fall 2021 semester.

For those Syracuse students admitted prior to the fall of 2018, the tuition totals $52,240; for those admitted in fall 2018 and afterwards, tuition runs $55,920.

Room rates for most full-time returning undergraduates will increase by an average of 3.5 percent, and meal-plan rates will go up an average of 3 percent, depending on the housing and meal plans chosen.

The Syracuse University budget has “no proposed increase” to the undergraduate student activity fee, co-curricular fee, or the residential internet and cable service fee. It does include a 2 percent increase in the health and wellness fee, which supports “significantly enhanced” services available at the Barnes Center at The Arch.

Program fees across schools and colleges “remain mostly flat,” Syracuse said.

In the 2021-22 budget, graduate-assistant stipends will increase by an overall average of 2.5 percent, with the new minimum stipend for graduate students totaling $16,485. For students on a university fellowship, the 2021-22 minimum amounts for fellowships have increased to $16,485 for master’s degree students and remain at $25,290 for doctoral students.

Syracuse University also announced its “largest financial aid commitment to date.” Its budget includes $307 million in student aid, up 7 percent over the prior fiscal year.
