Bucknell Announces 2020-21 Tuition Freeze

In light of the financial toll that COVID-19 has taken on many students and their families, Bucknell has frozen our tuition at the 2019-20 rate for all students, which will mean a savings of more than $2,000 per student over our previously announced rate.

The freeze applies to tuition only, meaning the cost of room and board will stay at previously announced rates. Visit our Tuition, Fees & Financial Aid page for more details and a full cost breakdown.

If you have questions about your aid, please reach out to the Office of Financial Aid at or 570-577-1331.
