Graduate Cost of Attendance

Each year the financial aid office prepares a student expense budget defining estimated standard allowances for education costs for graduate and professional students. The cost of attendance includes average amounts for standard expenses such as tuition, fees, books, supplies, room, board, and other living expenses. 

Estimated budgets differ by college and your actual costs may be different depending on unit enrollment and other program fees. In some cases we can increase your budget to take into account additional expenses such as film projects, medical expenses, CMS costs, or child care expenses. See the Graduate Appeal to Adjust Cost of Attendance Form for additional information. 

The Cost of Attendance estimates for 2018-2019 are listed below by college.
