Cost of Education

The cost of attending AIC is less than you may think. Cost of attendance is based on charges (see Estimated Charges Per Semester to the right) minus financial aid. The actual price you will pay, the net price, is specific to you because it's based on your personal circumstances and AIC's financial aid policies. Click here to get an estimate of your net price.

Estimated charges are based on an average course load of 15 semester credit hours at $390 per credit hour. The charge for fees, books and supplies vary based on course requirements. Room and meal charges are fixed for students living on campus and include 19 meals per week.

*Actual cost, net price, is much less than what is charged because all AIC students receive some form of financial aid. For the 2013-14 academic year the average amount of financial aid awarded was over $5,000 per student each semester. This includes federal aid as well as aid awarded by the College.
