Costs

Financial aid is based on the estimated cost of attendance and your enrollment level. This is not your school bill. This is an estimate of your anticipated direct and indirect costs for attending full time for three terms during the standard academic year (Fall/Winter/Spring).

Your actual room and board, transportation and personal expenses may vary from these estimates; however, we use these estimated expenses to determine your eligibility for financial aid. Note that your state residency status changes the amount you will pay in tuition each term so make sure your residency status is correct.
