The tuition and fees noted above will be greater for students who enroll in the School for University Studies, New College for Interdisciplinary Studies, and Program for Academic Learning Skills (PALS). The room and board cost reflects the average room charge and minimum first-year student dining plan. Individual student costs may vary, depending upon the housing option and dining plan selected.
Average expenses that the Office of Financial Aid uses to determine award packages also include allowances for books and supplies ($1,000), and personal/miscellaneous expenses such as transportation, clothing, entertainment, and recreation ($2,822). These costs are not billed by the University to students, but are out-of-pocket expenses that students may incur. For calculating financial aid, the Office of Financial Aid uses an estimated total annual cost of attendance of $46,348.
Tuition and fees are handled by the Student Financial Services and Registrar Suite B, in the Student Financial Services and Registrar Suite in Memorial Hall. They offer a variety of payment options. All payments shall be applied first to past-due balances, and then to current charges.
