Cost of Attendance

Review Your Educational Costs

Cost of attendance is based on estimated student budgets that include tuition/fees, housing, books/supplies, and personal/miscellaneous expenses.  Academic-year costs assume full-time attendance for two semesters, Fall and Spring.  These budgets are used to award financial aid and are published annually.  Actual costs may vary depending on students' housing/dining selections. See Housing or Dining for additional details on those options.
