*The estimated total tuition and fee costs assume full time attendance in consecutive terms. This is the “sticker price” before any financial aid that you may be eligible to receive. You may also be able to apply your financial aid toward your book and supply costs. You should talk to your admissions counselor about possible financial aid, including grants, loans and scholarships. This financial aid will reduce your “out of pocket” costs.
