Your financial aid eligibility is determined by taking your cost of attendance for the academic year minus your expected family contribution (results of filing the FAFSA). Your cost of attendance is comprised of your direct, billed costs for tuition and fees and if applicable, room and board. Additionally, you incur related education expenses for which you are not billed such as books and supplies, transportation costs, etc. The combination of your direct and indirect costs equals your cost of attendance.

The direct costs shown below are actual expenses for the 2019-2020 academic year. Students should also expect to incur indirect costs such as costs for books and supplies. Direct costs appear on a student’s bill, while indirect costs vary according to individual needs. Please remember that students must purchase their books each semester from the book store. Charges for books will not appear on a student’s bill.
