Financial Aid Costs (per year) Academic Year 2017-2018

Cost of Attendance is an estimate of the student's overall expenses for the period of enrollment. It is made up of direct costs (tuition and fees) and indirect costs (transportation, personal expenses, etc.).

Indirect costs included in a student's budget are estimates only for what it might cost you to rent an apartment, buy groceries, travel to and from school, and depend heavily on your personal expenses; however, this is not an actual bill from the school.

The college uses these costs for the purposes of determining your overall estimated need in order to try to meet that need with various forms of financial assistance.
