How do we calculate the cost of attedance? On August 12, 2016, we used official information published by multiple parts of the university to create an up-to-date snapshot of total costs. Each link takes you to the website where that information is maintained, although some information may be in a PDF on that website.

You shouldn't have to perform a scavenger hunt to see what college costs, so we've done the work for you. Just remember that your costs may be different if you're studying in select programs or attending part-time or online.
