Important Note for students enrolling in the Summer 2016 semester:
Student continuing enrollment in the summer semester and who purchased health insurance through the College during fall 2016 or spring 2017 will be charged an additional $74 on their student account to extend coverage through the end of the summer semester.  If you continue enrollment in the fall 2016 semester and purchase insurance through the College, the $74 assessed for summer 2016 will be credited back to your account.

Students required to purchase insurance for the first time due to enrollment in 75% of the full-time course load will be charged $718 for health insurance.  If you have comparable coverage you can waive the insurance by logging in to University Health Plans.

Estimated Cost of Attendance:
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 2016-2017 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.
