Student budgets

Your student budget is the amount of money we estimate you will need for tuition, books and living expenses for the nine-month academic year (October-June).  It is based on surveys of students’ costs, comparisons with other schools, input from housing and transportation agencies, and it reflects cost-of-living changes.

Student budgets can include only the student's educational costs; other family members' expenses cannot be included in the budget.  The figures below are subject to change each academic year.

Students may submit a revision request form to have additional costs (childcare, uninsured medical/dental costs for the student, etc.) included in their individual budgets.

For detailed tuition rates, consult the tuition rates page.
