Cost of Attendance
Each semester you will be required to pay tuition and fees based on your in-state or out-of-state status, as well as room and board if you live on campus. These costs are known as direct costs, because they are paid directly to the university. In addition, there are non-direct costs that will not appear on your bill, but that you should anticipate in your plan to finance your education. These non-direct costs include books and supplies, transportation, and other personal expenses.
The combined direct and non-direct costs are referred to as the “cost of attendance” budget. Use these estimates to project your expenses and to plan how you will pay for them, whether you will be pursuing your education with the assistance of financial aid or not. Amounts of non-direct costs may vary from student to student, depending on individual circumstances. Please refer to the chart below.
