When budgeting for each school year, the following fixed expenses should be considered in the calculation of your total budget.  These expenses vary greatly depending on your lifestyle.  The amounts listed below are general estimates.  Once enrolled in the program, we will be happy to email you a budget worksheet with a more detailed list of expenses to help you manage your money wisely. You can also visit our net price calculator to help you estimate your costs.

Tuition and Fees – $30,943 – $31,993 a year

Housing (includes utilities) – $7,000 to $12,000 a year

Food – $2,400 (eating in) and $5,400 (eating out) a year

Books and Supplies – $500 to $1,500 a year

Additional items to consider are transportation, personal and miscellaneous expenses.  You should also have an Emergency Fund for unexpected expenses.  Many local stores, retailers and movie theatres offer discounts to students.  Have your student I.D. on hand!
