The financial aid office calculates average financial aid budgets that includes tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board (living expenses), transportation costs, and personal expenses. These budget items added together make up the “Cost of Attendance.”

Our cost of attendance reflects the average cost for a student attending full time (15 or more hours for our nine-month academic year). Actual tuition and fees will vary, depending on the number of credit hours you take.


2021-2022 Student Expense Budgets

These budgets are based on fall and spring full-time enrollment (15 credits per term) for 32 weeks. Budgets are prorated for single term and/or summer enrollment. Additional costs may be incurred for students in some allied health programs.

Cost of Attendance, Financial Need and the EFC

In general terms, “financial need” is defined as the difference between what it costs you to attend school (Cost of Attendance) and what you and your family can afford to pay (Expected Family Contribution). The greater the financial need the lower the EFC. A family's EFC remains the same even when the price of the school increases.
