Financial Aid Estimated Cost of Attendance

The financial aid budget, which is also referred to as the “estimated cost of attendance,” includes average tuition, fees, books, supplies & standardized living expenses for the student only, for a normal academic year (9 months).

Expenses of family members cannot be included in the budget.  Financial aid “need” is determined by subtracting the expected family contribution from the estimated cost of attendance.
