Estimated Yearly Costs

The cost of attendance is the estimated cost of completing an academic year and/or a semester as a full time student and includes tuition, fees, books/equipment, course/loan fees, living expenses, and other required costs as approved by your program. These estimates are conservative by design, and in no way attempt to reflect differences in actual costs incurred by students with differing lifestyle choices. Living expense estimates are based on academic periods of enrollment; summer living expenses are not funded unless you are required to be enrolled.
