To determine your cost of attendance, w​e take estimated direct costs (tuition, room and meal plan, and other university fees) and add them to estimated indirect costs (books and supplies, transportation, and other personal expenses). The result is a standard academic year's Cost of Attendance for a full-time student. Your actual expenses may be more or less than the average estimates used.​​
