Cost of Attendance

The following chart provides an example of estimated expenses based on a 15-credit year; actual cost may vary. A student taking 15 credits in one year usually takes two courses in the fall (6 credits), two courses in the spring (6 credits), and one course in the summer (3 credits). The total amount of a student’s financial aid cannot exceed the total cost-of-attendance budget.
