Cost

Cost of attendance estimates vary based on enrollment level each semester and a variety of other factors and consists of direct costs (expenses paid directly to the school) and indirect costs (expenses incurred while in school). The costs below are based on full-time (12–18 credit hours) enrollment for fall 2020 and spring 2021.
