Cost of Attendance

Student expenses will vary from student to student. Our estimated figures are based on student surveys and updates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. These figures are here to give you an idea of what to expect when attending college and whether you are living within the cost levels of other students.

Add your program’s tuition and fees to the living expenses listed below to determine your Cost of Attendance (COA).

Please add the following to your program costs

Additional Student Expenses Dorm/Off-Campus Living with Parents/Relatives
Room (On-campus housing charges will vary) $ 14,500 $ 0

**The costs above are only to be used for planning purposes. Students will be responsible for only the charges listed on their Student Accounts invoice.**

**International students please note that the above Estimated Cost of Attendance is based on a nine-month academic year and is not the same as the estimated costs used for the U.S. Visa application.
