Cost of Attendance 2022-2023

Each year the Financial Aid Office develops the student cost of attendance budget (also called the student budget). This budget is used in conjunction with the Expected Family Contribution (EFC - calculated through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid [FAFSA]) to determine each student's maximum financial aid eligibility. (See Financial Need/Overaward Policy section for further information on this.) The student budget consists of fixed charges including tuition, fees, room and board and estimated charges including books and supplies, transportation costs and personal expenses. Use of financial aid funds to purchase a motor vehicle is strictly prohibited by federal law. There are different budgets for different classes of students. These include dorm (living in campus facilities), off-campus (living off-campus but not with parents; married students are included in this category) and commuter (living with parents).

For the 2022-2023 academic year these student budgets consist of:

        Dorm     Off-Campus Commuter
Tuition $35,280          $35,280   $35,280
Fees   840                840          840
Room & Meals 10,580            10,580       2,400
Books & Supplies 1,280             1,280       1,280
Personal Expenses 1,490    2,100       1,490
Travel       910    1,700       1,700
Total $50,380 $51,780   $42,990

Some of these items are estimates based on average or maximum costs. If a particular student's cost varies significantly from the estimate, that student's budget can be adjusted if the student submits a written request accompanied by documentation of the actual cost.

Additional charges such as parking fees, deposits, extra charges for certain courses and charges for part-time attendance are published each year in the Schedule of Semester Fees, which also includes the actual fixed charges for that academic year.
