» Graduate Student Cost of Attendance

Your eligibility for financial aid depends on the cost of attendance for your program.

Your budget includes tuition and fees (based on your enrollment), books and supplies, and a living allowance based on average costs for room and board, personal expenses, transportation, and parking.

Your actual expenses may be different. We recommend you consider the given cost of attendance for your program when you are making decisions about housing and other living expenses, keeping in mind that living on a student budget can mean a change to your lifestyle.

For students with extenuating circumstances, rare exceptions can be made to increase the cost of attendance. You may be asked to provide documentation to support your situation. Please contact the Office of Graduate Financial Aid to inquire.
