Tuition and Fees
The tuition rate is determined every year in the spring preceding the start of the academic year.

Room and Board
The room and board allowance should permit a student comfortable, but modest, housing and a balanced diet. Students are expected to share housing with at least one other student and to develop other money-saving techniques (such as eating in rather than dining in restaurants and sending emails or writing letters instead of making long-distance phone calls) in order to live within this allowance.

Books and Supplies
The allowance for books and supplies is sufficient for the purchase of all required books and supplies.

Personal Expenses
The personal allowance covers necessary living expenses other than room and board, which are related to being a student. Among these may be routine costs of transportation to and from campus (including parking fees), basic telephone service, and health insurance.
