Financial Aid

Cost Detail

The cost of attendance (or budget) components are comprised of five elements: average tuition and fees, average books and supplies, allowances for room and board, transportation and personal and miscellaneous.

One way that students can save money on tuition costs over their college careers is to add an additional class beyond 12 credits.  There is a substantial discount beginning at the 13th credit.   For examples of savings, please review FYI-For Your Information.

Several of the components remain the same for every full-time student:

  • Books and supplies: $ 1,200
  • Transportation: $1,844
  • Personal and miscellaneous $1,600

Room and board are modest allowances for students who live at home or off-campus.

  • At Home $1,930
  • Off-Campus $7,720
