Cost of Attendance & Tuition

Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance is the maximum amount of financial aid that a student can receive per academic year.

Cost of attendance helps the Office of Student Financial Services determine the amount of financial aid each student is eligible to receive; the Office of Student Financial Services determines a cost of attendance for each academic program. The cost of attendance is our estimation of what it could cost a student to live and go to school.

The most recent information is based upon the results of a student email survey and current tuition rates. The cost of attendance budget is for the individual student, not for a family. The budget is reviewed each year and altered as needed.

If you're considering summer enrollment, review the summer cost of attendance information.
