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.

Required fees

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 + 300 Dining Dollars). Although there are many plans available, including Kosher options, we recommend first-year students take a 150-block or higher meal plan.

Indirect Costs

Discretionary costs that the student will incur but are not billed directly by the school. (e.g. books and supplies, transportation, or miscellaneous expenses.) These amounts are averages and will vary from student to student.
