The Office of Student Financial Services develops annual estimates for use in making financial aid decisions. The estimates offered here reflect expected costs for students who enter the university after the Spring of 2011. The estimates include tuition and fees (which vary based on college/department), books (approximately $874 per year), room and board including some costs beyond campus housing (see housing information above), transportation and personal/miscellaneous expenses.
Information used by the Office of Student Financial Services to determine eligibility for financial aid is also useful in helping prospective students estimate what a typical education at the university is likely to cost.
