Cost of Attendance

Review Your Educational Costs

Cost of attendance is based on estimated student budgets that include tuition/fees, housing, food, books, course materials, supplies, equipment, and personal/miscellaneous expenses.  Academic-year costs assume full-time attendance for two semesters, Fall and Spring.  These budgets are used to determine aid eligibility and financial aid cannot exceed educational costs.  Actual costs may vary depending on students' housing/food selections. See Housing or Food for additional details on those options.
