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:

Total Cost of Attendance
Before Financial Aid



*The Laptop Fee is required and charged in the first year only. This cost is inclusive of sales tax and is billed by Student Accounts in 2 installments.

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.  

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.
