Tuition & Expenses

Cost to all Students

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.
