Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance includes expenses that are determined by the institution (tuition/fees) and expenses that are flexible based on student choices (housing/meals, books, transportation costs, and miscellaneous expenses). These combined tuition and other expenses represent the entire cost of attendance. Individual expenses will vary based on student-specific majors, courses, living arrangements, and personal spending decisions.  These values are used in the awarding of Financial Aid for students.  Estimated costs for 2019-2020 & 2020-2021 are listed below.
