Can I Afford It?

Our simple answer is yes. Once you are admitted, our team of financial aid professionals will work with you to make your education as affordable as possible. Almost every admitted student is eligible for some form of financial aid.

We will also help you understand and explore all of your financing options. After factoring in all sources of support, your out-of-pocket costs will be much lower than the figures below.

What Is Included in the Cost of Attendance?

  • These costs do not include any financial aid, loans, scholarships, or other awards you may receive. Almost every admitted student is eligible for some form of financial aid.
  • The total cost of attendance includes both direct costs and indirect costs.
  • Direct costs are billed directly to you by the school and include tuition and student health insurance fees.
  • Indirect costs are not billed by the school and reflect your estimated living and miscellaneous expenses based on annual student surveys. These expenses may vary depending on your circumstances.
  • These tuition fees assume full-time enrollment and may vary for students who are enrolled part-time.
  • Tuition and fees are subject to change and are finalized every May.
