Cost to Attend

  • Cost to Attend

  • Almost all of our students who apply for financial aid – 94% -- receive some form of assistance. That means their actual cost to attend is less than the established tuition and fees.

    Here are examples for three different kinds of students: an in-state student living on campus, an out-of-state student living on campus, and an in-state student commuting.

    These examples, which are based on rates for the 2019-20 year, will give you an idea of what you may pay. Keep in mind that your actual cost to attend may vary. Use our net price calculator to get a more accurate estimate of what your net price would be.
