Cost of Attendance

Tuition and fees are combined with expected living expenses to create a standard cost of attendance. A cost of attendance is also referred to as a budget. A student's financial aid in an academic year may not exceed the cost of attendance. Financial aid includes merit-based aid, loans, outside scholarships, and grants.
