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 (2016-2017 Academic Year)

Resident Non-Resident
Room and Board * $7,170 $7,170
Books and Supplies $1,204 $1,204
Transportation $1,692 $1,692
Personal $2,106 $2,106
Subtotal $12,172 $12,172
Tuition and Fees (est) $7,072 $18,682
Budget $19,244 $30,854

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