Estimated Cost of Attendance for 2018-2019 (fall and spring)
The Office of Financial Aid calculates an estimated cost of attendance for student financial aid applicants based on federal student aid guidance. Cost of Attendance consists of direct costs (i.e. Tuition and Fees – the amount you owe prior to the start of the semester) and indirect costs (i.e. books, personal expenses and transportation). Cost of attendance estimates vary based on enrollment level each semester and a variety of other factors:
- Estimated Tuition and Fees – varies by residency, level of enrollment, College or School of enrollment and course enrollment (i.e. courses including a lab) Note: actual tuition and fees calculations and billing are done by the Office of the Bursar
- Room and Board – varies by whether a student lives in on campus residence halls, living off campus or living at home with parents; if a student is enrolled less than half-time, no room and board allowance can be provided
- Books and Supplies – A standard allowance is generally provided based on whether a student is enrolled full-time, three-quarter time, half-time or less than half-time
- Transportation – A standard allowance is generally provided based on whether a student lives in on campus residence halls or either lives off campus or at home with parents
- Personal Expenses – A standard allowance is generally provided; if a student is enrolled less than half-time no personal expense allowance can be provided
