Cost to Attend


  • The rates below are for the 2017-2018 academic year, new rates will be posted in July for the upcoming academic year.


    Almost all of our students who apply for financial aid – 98.9% -- 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 will give you an idea of what you may pay. However, 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.
