Graduate Cost of Attendance (fall/spring)

There are two types of costs considered in the financial aid process: direct costs and indirect costs. Together these costs represent the official cost of attendance (student budget).

Direct costs are those funds which are charged directly to your student account and payable to the university. For Graduate students, this always includes tuition and fees.

Indirect costs vary per student and are not included in your bill. For Graduate students these include room and board, books/supplies, transportation, and personal expenses.

Financial aid for graduate students is packaged under the assumption that a student is attending full-time (nine credits per semester).  A student who is attending less than nine credits per semester will have a lower cost of attendance and will be eligible for less financial aid than a full-time student.  Conversely, a student who is attending more than nine credits per semester will have a higher cost of attendance and may be eligible for additional financial aid.  An audit of enrollment and financial aid will be performed each semester at the end of the drop/add period to insure the amount of aid received coincides with the number of credits enrolled in for the semester.  If you already know your attendance will be different than nine credits per semester, please complete the Course Load Change form and return it to the financial aid office.  We will adjust your aid offer to your intended enrollment status.
