Cost of Attendance

The annual “Cost of Attendance” is determined by adding up all costs –both those billed by the college and other expenses incurred by the family – for the academic year.  As a result, the cost of attendance used to determine aid eligibility is higher than what you will see on your billing statement:

The Net Price Calculator is a great tool for helping prospective first-year students estimate eligibility for financial aid.  The calculator uses information you provide about your family's financial cicumstances along with currently available tuition and fees for the academic year.
