Full Cost by Semester

The Financial Aid Office calculates financial aid awards for each student based on her or his financial and academic circumstances. To do this, we use a matrix of program costs based on living 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.

  • Tuition rates are calculated using per credit program tuition costs and 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 course-specific fees.
  • Housing costs are calculated based on standard on-campus housing rates, local off-campus housing rates, and estimated expenses for students living with family members.
  • Meal costs are based on on-campus meal-plan options and local cost-of-living indexes.
  • Book and supply expenses are estimated 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.
