Average cost of attendance
The average cost of attendance is an estimate based on in-state tuition, approximate cost of books/supplies, and average housing cost.
Average net cost
A more important metric for cost is the average net cost. The net price is the average annual cost of attendance, including tuition and fees, books and supplies, and living expenses, minus the average grant/scholarship aid. This value can fluctuate dramatically depending on your academic performance and other factors.
