Other Costs

These will vary according to your field of study, but generally range from $500 to $1,000 for the academic year. Personal and transportation expenses usually range from $700 to $1,400 per year. We add these expenses to the costs above and use the total, a figure referred to as your “Estimated Cost of Attendance”, to determine your eligibility and need for financial aid.
