Dear Dickinson Parents:

Dickinson’s Board of Trustees recently approved the college’s comprehensive fee schedule for the 2022-23 academic year. The annual price for tuition, room, board and fees will increase by 4.47% from $73,960 to $77,264. Please note that during the last five years our average increase has been less than the increases at our peer institutions. While we have taken significant measures to control costs for the coming year and beyond, given the significant rise in inflation and ongoing costs associated with COVID-19, this increase is essential.

The specific amounts for each component of our comprehensive fee for the 2022-23 academic year will be:

Tuition: $60,776
Room: $8,220
Board: $7,718
Student fee: $550
Total fee: $77,264

In line with our ongoing and increased commitment to access and affordability and our efforts to assist students and their families, the college will continue to meet demonstrated financial need in the 2022-23 year. It is important to remember that each financial aid case is assessed individually; therefore, any increase to the 2022-23 financial aid budget does not mean that all students will receive an increase in their need-based aid. Financial aid renewal instructions will be sent from the Office of Financial Aid before the end of February.

As you begin to plan for the next academic year, I encourage you to visit the Student Accounts Office website at dickinson.edu/studentaccounts. This site provides information about available payment methods, tuition payment plans and tax benefits for education. Members of the student accounts team are also ready to help you and can be reached at 717-245-1953 or stuaccts@dickinson.edu.
Thank you for your ongoing commitment to Dickinson.

Sincerely,

John E. Jones III ’77, P’11
Interim President
