The Board of Trustees approved a 4.35% increase to Duke’s undergraduate cost of attendance at a recent quarterly meeting.

The total cost of attendance will be $86,886 for the 2024-25 academic year, according to a Monday news release. Tuition will be $66,325 and room, board and fees will be $20,561.

The previous undergraduate tuition increase in 2023 raised the cost of attendance by 4.9%, bringing it to its current cost of $83,263.

The trustees also approved tuition increases ranging from 0% to 5.3% for graduate and professional school programs. They “reaffirmed Duke’s commitment to access and affordability by providing financial aid for all admitted undergraduate students who qualify,” according to the news release.

Duke has invested approximately $1.5 billion in financial assistance for undergraduate students since 2012, according to the release. More than half of Duke undergraduate students currently receive some form of financial assistance, including “need-based aid, athletic scholarships and endowed competitive scholarships.”

Duke is one of a few colleges and universities with a need-blind admissions policy for United States citizens, permanent residents and undocumented students, meaning that an applicant’s need for financial aid will not disadvantage them in the admissions process. Duke is not need-blind for international students.

In June 2023, Duke announced that it would provide full tuition grants for undergraduates from North Carolina and South Carolina with family incomes of $150,000 or less, and would provide additional aid for housing, meals and other expenses for family incomes under $65,000.
