Cost of Attendance

Cost of Attendance

The College is required by the federal government to derive Cost of Attendance budgets for several categories of students. The budgets, used in calculating eligibility for federal aid, include direct costs such as tuition, fees and books as well as indirect costs like room, board, transportation and personal expenses. These budgets represent estimated costs for an academic year, or two semesters, for an average student. Two common full-time budgets are shown below. Cost of Attendance budgets for part-time students are prorated. See Financial Aid for current year budgets or more information.
