Important Information

The estimates above apply to full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students only.  

These estimates do not represent a final determination, or actual award, of financial assistance or a final net price; they are only estimates based on cost of attendance and financial aid provided to students in the previous academic year. Cost of attendance and financial aid availability change year to year. These estimates shall not be binding on the Secretary of Education, the institution of higher education, or the State.

Please keep in mind that Direct Cost Items are fees that are billed by the University. These amounts may vary based on your individual room assignment and meal plan choices. The On-Campus Costs listed in the Net Price Calculator are based on a traditional double room and a 19 meal plan. Indirect Costs are not actual amounts paid to the University. They are simply estimates of other expenses that may be incurred throughout the academic year. *The Total Cost of Attendance is the maximum amount of aid a student can receive from any source for the academic year.*

Not all students receive financial aid. In 2016-17, 100% of our full-time students enrolling for college for the first time received grant/scholarship aid. Students may also be eligible for student loans and work-study. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to determine their eligibility for Federal financial aid that includes Federal grant, loan, or work-study assistance.
