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.  Keep in mind that due to our generous financial aid policies most students pay significantly less.  Our affordability facts demonstrate our commitments in the area of financial aid.

Consult with Student Accounts for specific billing and cost information. Health insurance coverage is required of all enrolled students. Students have the option of utilizing comparable personal insurance or using the college sponsored plan. If you are using the college sponsored insurance – that premium will be considered for financial aid eligibility once coverage is confirmed.
