Cost of Attendance
The cost of attendance includes tuition & fees, room & board, books & supplies, transportation and personal/miscellaneous expenses. Cost of Attendance is broken into two types of costs: direct and indirect costs. The Office of Financial uses the cost of attendance to determine the maximum amount of federal, state, institutional and private resources students can receive to cover educational expenses.
Direct costs are charges that a student will incur on their billing statement from the Office of Student Accounting. These costs include tuition, fees, and room & board (if living on-campus).
Indirect costs are costs incurred by the students, such as books & supplies, an allowance for off campus room & board, transportation, and personal/miscellaneous expenses. These represent expenses that normally do not appear on the University billing statement.
