Cost of Attendance


Along with direct costs (tuition and fees), indirect costs are also factored into a student’s estimated cost of attendance. The approximate amount of living expenses is based on a community survey and consumer price index. The indirect costs, listed below, will vary based on individual situations, and are used to give students a general idea of the overall annual cost of their academic program.
