Cost of Attendance

Your total cost of attendance will vary depending on whether you are enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate or non-degree program. It will also depend on your state of residence. Generally speaking, Pennsylvania residents have a lower total cost of attendance.

The total cost of attendance takes into account your tuition, fees, housing and food plan (costs you will be billed for*), and books, transportation, and other out-of-pocket expenses (which are not included on your bill and we estimate these annual expenses to be about $4500).
