Financial Aid Budget

Each year the Financial Aid Office determines a budget/cost of attendance that projects average costs for tuition, fees, room and board, books, and other expenses. Budgets are used to represent student differences with regards to residency, enrollment and academic level. All financial aid awards are based on budgets for full-time attendance and adjusted at the census.

The sample budgets below represent average costs for the 2016-2017 year. These budgets are based on full-time enrollment for undergraduate students, half-time enrollment for graduate students, and full-time enrollment for doctoral students.
