Important Notes:

  • Some of the budget items may be estimates and are subject to revision once University budgeting processes are complete.
  • Specialized Extended Education programs may have varying tuition and fee rates. Contact Extended Education for details.
  • To estimate a one quarter cost of attendance, divide the academic year figures by 3.
  • The cost of attendance for less than fulltime enrollment is determined by reduced tuition, fees, and book expenses.
  • All newly matriculated students (not including extension or graduate students) admitted for fall term are charged an enrollment fee. This fee is included separately in the cost of attendance for financial aid purposes, to ensure that students may be considered for aid for this expense.
  • For Graduate MBA, Graduate Pathology, and Clinical Doctorate in Audiology consult the University catalog for tuition and fee schedules.
  • Tuition and fee amounts in the financial aid budget may vary slightly from amounts charged due to rounding.
  • Students with actual educational costs higher than the standard cost of attendance may have those costs reviewed for consideration in the financial aid award subject to regulatory requirements and professional judgment.
  • The standard Room and Board budget is based on average expenses. Individual students may have higher or lower room and board expenses.
