Cost of Attendance

Our office uses estimated information to create a standard cost of attendance, or budget, for all students. This information varies depending on undergraduate or graduate status as well as residency, enrollment status ( half-time, full-time etc), and living arrangements.

Below are the most common budgets used. These figures are for the entire academic year, fall and spring, so one-semester costs can be figured by dividing the figures in half.

Undergraduate Students, full-time (2015-2016 Academic Year)

Resident Non-Resident
Room and Board * $7,178 $7,178
Books and Supplies $1,148 $1,148
Transportation $2,970 $2,970
Personal $2,096 $2,096
Subtotal $13,392 $13,392
Tuition and Fees (est) $6,484 $17,210
Budget $19,876 $30,602

* Students who indicate they are living with a parent will have a smaller room and board allowance.
