How to understand your Cost of Attendance
Cost of Attendance is an estimated budget that the school uses to help students maximize financial aid opportunities. This budget is estimated using direct and indirect costs that a student will incur while enrolled in an academic program.
Direct Costs: Expenses that the student will pay directly to the school. These items include Tuition and Fees, Health Insurance, and Nonresident Supplemental Tuition (for California nonresidents).
Indirect Costs: Estimated expenses that the student will incur while enrolled in an academic program but will not pay to the school. These items include Books and Supplies, Room & Board, Personal Expenses, and Transportation.
Please note: The cost of attendance is calculated based on the current academic year's budget and represents the estimated expenses for a single academic year. In the event your program extends over multiple academic years, the fees listed in the budget indicate the estimated annual cost, not the total cost of the program.
