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.
