Not knowing your exact situation, I will give it in pieces - pick and choose the cost items that apply in your case. of course, you will have to figure out what type of doors you are after (if you don't have them in-hand already), and what they cost to buy. If carpenter is buying them, add about 15% allowance for his pickup time and profit.

Assuming they are the same rough-in size (for the same size opening in the wall) as the original doors and are pre-hung (door already mounted in the frame), probably about $100/door to install. You might find a finish carpenter who is a whiz with doors who would do that many for a lump sum $400-500 or so, others who like me who just do not like doing doors or for heavy solid wood doors might charge you $125-175/door. If hauling old doors away and disposing of them add $75. Note - old doors on a 2x4 frame (with 2x2 edge supports for hollow-core doors) make great storage racks for basement, garage, or shed.

If have to resize openings, probably about $50/door extra to reduce it a bit, can be $200-400/opening more to upsize it, including replacement paneling or getting a drywall guy and painter in to repair the drywall that has to be removed to widen the door header.

This of course does not include door cost, which can range from about $50 for box store specials (fake wood cardboard core doors) to $1000 each - depending on how fancy you go. Normal pre-hung doors typically about $100-200 each. Add about $30-60/door if you are putting in new trim rather than reusing old. New doorknob/locks can run from $20-25 for simple bedroom door xxxx to $250+ for decorative stainless or polished brass. New metal or hardwood sill strips about $25-40 each installed, if do not come with door.

Add about $50/door if need finishing (i.e. not prefinished) and you are not going to do that yourself. Most prehung doors that are real wood (as opposed to laminate or plastic) come unfinished.
