How do we calculate the cost of attendance? On August 18, 2017, 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.

*This is small print, so we should note that costs are subject to change. For example, the housing and meals cost has been updated since we published estimates in our print piece this summer. Average costs are about $500 dollars more than the table above. The links will take you to official, up-to-date information.)
