Fees and Cost of Attendance for 2014-2015 Academic Year

The Cost of Attendance (COA) or budget for a student is an estimate of that student’s educational expenses for the period of enrollment. The Higher Education Act of 1965 specifies that a student’s COA includes tuition and fees normally assessed for a student carrying the same academic workload and an allowance for living expenses, such as room and board, books and supplies, personal, and transportation costs. The law also provides limited allowances for loan fees, dependent-care costs, and expenses for disabled students. The following tables show the average expenses for a nine-month academic year based on 2014-2015 fee levels. Students should take into account their own spending and the possibility of unforeseen expenses.

More information can be found in the Fees & Cost of Attendance page.
