Estimated Costs of Undergraduate Attendance

The tables below show the estimated cost of attendance for the 2023-24 academic year. The estimates in the tables below assume that you are enrolled as a full-time student. 

Most students aged 24 and under are considered Dependent according to the Department of Education FAFSA guidelines, and must enter parental information on the FAFSA. Students will be considered Independent if they are a graduate student, married, support children, active duty military, a veteran, an orphan or ward of the court, under legal guardianship of someone other than their parent, an unaccompanied youth, or at risk of homelessness. If you are unsure if you are considered a Dependent or Independent student, please contact the Financial Aid Office for guidance.

**Please refer to the Academic Catalog for additional fees and withdrawal/refund policies. 

The Financial Aid office has been a tremendous help to me. They’re always so considerate of student’s circumstances and seek to assist students in any way possible. There have been times when I felt that I wouldn’t be able to continue my college career, but with their help and guidance, I am now a senior looking forward to graduation in May.
