These day charges are categorized as such strictly for college accounting purposes. If your bill shows D/D charges, they are treated as regular day charges for billing purposes. However, D/D charges may not be eligible for certain types of tuition and fee waivers.
In-state charges: In order to qualify for in-state charges, an individual must be able to prove Massachusetts residency for six continuous months and intent to remain in the state. For further details, contact Enrollment Services at 413-775-1801 or 413-775-1807.

Typically, the special tuition rates are offered to students from other New England states who are degree candidates in academic areas not offered by educational institutions in their home states. NEBHE students are charged at 150% of in-state tuition. For further details, contact Enrollment Services at 413-775-1801 or 413-775-1807.
