Cost of Attendance

Student Photo

The cost of attendance consists of the following base components: tuition and fees, books and supplies, transportation, room and board, and personal expenses. Adjustments may be made to the cost of attendance for students enrolled in distance education courses. Cost of attendance estimates vary depending on a student's enrollment level and living situation. Four enrollment categories are:

Enrollment Status Credit Hours

Full-time 12 credit hours or more
Three-quarter time 9 - 11 credit hours
Half-time 6 - 8 credit hours
Less than half-time 1 - 5 credit hours

For students who live with parents and do not have dependents themselves, a lower cost of attendance is estimated for room, board, and personal expenses. When estimating your cost of attendance, keep in mind that living expenses are estimated and would be incurred regardless of whether or not you're enrolled in college.
