How is tuition cost calculated?

Tuition is calculated per contact hour, or the total hours per week of scheduled classroom, lab, and clinical instruction time.

There are various components to calculating your college costs for each semester. Definitions for each component follow the Tuition and Fee Calculator below.  The calculator produces an estimated cost.  Actual costs will be calculated at the time of registration.

Cost of Attendance

Cost of Attendance (COA) is an estimated amount of expenses a student may incur to attend college for one year. This is broken down by indirect costs and direct costs.

  • Direct costs are those paid directly to the college and include tuition and fees.
  • Indirect costs are educational costs not paid directly to the college. They can include books and supplies, transportation costs and personal expenses.
  • Housing and food may be considered either a direct cost (if you're living on campus) or an indirect cost (if you're living off campus).

Housing and food rates for the 2024-25 academic school year.

For students that will be living in the campus residence hall, the following fees are applicable per semester. You will need to add them to your estimated tuition for the semester.

Double Room: $2,300
Single Room: $3,800


Silver Meal Plan:  $990
Gold Meal Plan: $1,300
Platinum Meal Plan: $1,680


* The meal card value at the end of the fall semester can be carried over to the winter semester. Residence Hall students must still purchase a meal plan each semester; silver, gold or platinum.
