Tuition & Financial Aid
View Financial Aid Overview
The following tuition, fees, and living expenses are estimates to assist you with planning. These are the estimated amounts included in the financial aid budget and do not represent a student's actual expenses. The University Cashier's Office is responsible for billing tuition and has the most up-to-date amounts for charges. Please refer to their website for actual tuition and fee charges for a given academic year.
