Full Costs by Semester

The Financial Aid Office calculates financial aid awards for each student based on her or his unique financial and academic circumstances. To do this, we use a matrix of program costs based on averaged expenses and enrollment for each type of academic program. These program costs determine a student's financial aid budget, (estimated cost of attendance), and are used as a baseline for developing financial aid awards to help meet educational needs.

For an average program budget

  • Tuition rates are calculated using per credit program tuition costs and average registration at each enrollment tier (full-time, three-quarter-time, half-time, less-than-half-time).
  • Fees include mandatory program and student fees, but do not automatically include student- or course-specific fees.
  • Housing costs are calculated based on a comparison of standard on-campus living rates, local off-campus living rates, and estimated expenses for students living with family members.
  • Meal costs are based on on-campus meal-plan options as well as local cost-of-living indexes.
  • Book expenses are averaged based on overall student book costs, and are not specific to individual courses.
  • Personal and travel expenses are established by using national and local comparisons, and are not specific to individual choices.

Rates may change for every academic year. Please visit Student Accounts for current tuition, fees and on-campus room and board rates.
