Estimated College Costs (U.S. Citizens) - Current Students

Tuition and fees shown are based on fall 2015 rates and a course load of 12-15 credit hours each semester (fall and spring). Because tuition and fees are billed per semester hour, the actual costs may vary. Financial assistance awards are based on a more inclusive budget taking into consideration living arrangements (on or off campus) and personal and transportation expenses.

In order to insure that students receiving scholarships valued at “full-tuition and required fees” are awarded an amount sufficient to cover charges, it is possible that an amount larger than the actual cost will appear on the financial aid award. Please remember that scholarships which are awarded as “full-tuition and fees” will cover only the actual amount of tuition and fees incurred each fall and spring term, and any amount appearing on the award over and above the actual tuition/fees cost incurred will not be refunded to the student.
