What is Included in the Cost of Attendance?

The Cost of Attendance includes fixed costs such as tuition, fees, room & board and personal expenses such as books and supplies, transportation, off-campus room and board, and miscellaneous personal expenses.

The Department of Education requires that each university prepare 9-month cost of attendance budgets based on average costs of its students living at home with parents, on-campus housing, and off-campus housing.
These cost of attendance budgets are adjusted depending on the number of semesters enrolled and the enrollment status (full time, 3/4 time, 1/2 time and less than 1/2 time).

Estimated Cost Per Semester

  • Tuition: $5,850.00
  • Books & Supplies: $400.00
  • Room & Meal Plan: $3,101.00
Total Direct Cost: $9,351.00*
Total Direct Cost per Academic Year: $18,702.00*

*Totals are provided for example purposes only.  Actual direct and indirect costs vary depending on enrollment status, selection of classes, living arrangements and personal lifestyle.  Students are encouraged to save and live frugally in order to limit costs as much as possible.

*Average net cost per academic year is $8,976 (after all financial aid has been applied).

*Average is based on total estimated cost less the average financial aid awarded to all students. The actual price you will pay may be more or less than the average cost, and is based on your personal circumstances and what financial aid you receive.
