Cost of attendance figures are estimates intended to be used as a guideline, assisting students as they create their personal budgets. Students are not permitted to receive financial aid in excess of their cost of attendance and are encouraged to budget carefully and anticipate expenses as they progress through the curriculum. The Cost of Attendance is not meant to indicate the exact amount any individual student will be charged by the University, but rather an estimate of what it will cost the average student to attend the school for a given school year. The Cost of Attendance also includes the cost of the student health insurance plan.
