Cost of Attendance

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

Tuition $48,600
Room & Board $16,300

Student Activity Fee $180
General Fee $500
Laptop Fee** $2,656

Estimated Unbilled Expenses

Books and Supplies $300
