Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance covers the period you’re enrolled in the university and it spans nine to twelve months. Depending on your professional school, division, and your anticipated enrollment, the estimated cost of attendance can vary. It includes tuition, fees, health insurance, and living expenses during enrollment.

Note: The cost of attendance does NOT include relocation, vehicle expenses, credit card bills, or other expenses incurred prior to your period of enrollment.

If you’re a degree-seeking student who is enrolled less than halftime (less than 200 units), a non-degree seeking, or an international student, you are ineligible for Federal Student Assistance. However, you can apply for an Alternative/Private loan to cover tuition, fees, and books. Also, for students enrolled less-than-halftime or in a non-degree seeking program, there is NO allowance for living expenses.
