Cost of Attendance

Each year, the University is required by the U.S. Department of Education to prepare a Cost of Attendance budget. This estimated Cost of Attendance provides students and parents with reasonable projected educational costs associated with full-time attendance. Educational costs depend on your program of study, the number of hours enrolled and your living expenses. Costs for full-time enrollment for the academic year range from $32,155 for continuing undergraduate students to $55,874 for medical students. Your actual charges will depend on your program of study, standard of living, classification, place of residence, marital status, and the lifestyle choices that you make.

The Cost of Attendance also serves a budget for students receiving aid. Students receiving any form of aid should note that their aid, inclusive of federal, state, institutional and external aid, should not exceed their estimated Cost of Attendance. The University reserves the right to reduce, return or cancel aid that is excess of a student's Cost of Attendance without prior notice. Students who receive funds in excess of the estimated Cost of Attendance in the form of a refund/credit balance check my be required to repay any funds that are to be returned or cancelled. Students should review their financial aid accounts via BisonWeb, which will also detail the student's Cost of Attendance and be sure to inform the Office of Financial Aid of all anticipated aid from external sources.
