Other Costs

In addition to tuition and fees, you will need to factor expenses for books and supplies into your academic 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.
