Cost of Attendance

The Cost of Attendance includes tuition, student fees, expenses for housing, health insurance, and various other personal items. Cost of Attendance is composed of two types of expenses: Direct and Indirect.

Direct Costs

Direct costs are considered billable items, such as tuition, student fees, health insurance through WCM, and on-campus housing. Fees are determined based on program-specific needs.

Indirect Costs

Indirect costs are costs that may be incurred by the student, such as the following:

  • Books & Equipment
  • Supplies
  • Food & Personal (miscellaneous)
  • Subject Examinations

Miscellaneous items include personal expenses for clothing, laundry, toiletries, recreational, and other expenses not limited to the listed items.

Upon request, the Office of Financial Aid can adjust a student's budget/costs under certain circumstances with appropriate documentation. Examples of changes to standard budgets include, but are not limited to:

  1. Child care -- the cost of child care for students with dependent children
  2. Medical expenses that are not covered by insurance
  3. Residency Expenses
  4. One-time computer purchase within their program term (not to exceed $2,000)
