Full-time tuition covers 12 to 18 credits per semester. Course loads of fewer than 12 credits are billed at the part-time per credit rate. Course loads beyond 18 credits are billed at the full-time rate, plus an additional per-credit charge.
The Student Activity Fee, Health and Counseling Fee, Campus Green Fee, and Technology Fee are mandatory for full-time students.
Room and Board
This figure is based on the basic rate for a double room and the 150-block meal plan (150 meals + 350 Dining Dollars), the most popular board option for entering full-time students. Although there are many plans available, including Kosher options, we recommend a 150- or 190-block plan in the student's first year.
Books, supplies, etc.
This is the average costs of books and supplies for the academic year.
This estimate of miscellaneous costs may include transportation, computer, loan origination fees, or other personal costs.
