Here are the centrally administered charges that may appear in the student's monthly billing statement. We encourage students to consult with their school's financial aid office to understand what other costs may make up their total cost of attendance, such as books and supplies; room and board; personal expenses, etc.
TUITION AND FEES
$3,990 flat rate for 3 points per term
$1,330 per point for fewer than 3 points
For more than 3 points, flat rate is charged, plus the per-point rate
University Services and Support Fee
This University Services & Support fee for undergraduates residing in dormitories combines the Recreational Facilities Fee and the Information Technology Fee. The fee, as it normally does, includes athletic programming, including access to the Dodge Fitness Center. In recognition that capacity constraints and certain services may be operating differently, the athletic fee component has been reduced.
For all other students, as many remain off-campus and in remote learning, the University Services & Support fee will not include the athletic fee component and therefore not include access to the Dodge Fitness Center. Those who are on campus and wish to access the facility may do so by purchasing a membership online and emailing [email protected] with your receipt for membership activation.
The fee shall be charged as follows:
Students registered for 12 or more points (Undergraduate In-Residence): $409
Students registered for fewer than 12 points (Undergraduate In-Residence): $280
Students registered in the Executive M.B.A. program: $259
Students registered for 12 or more points (All Others): $259
Students registered for fewer than 12 points (All Others): $130
(If applicable) Health and Related Services Fee
Students newly admitted into Summer Sessions for Architecture registered for 12 or more points shall be charged $420.
Students continuing in Summer Sessions who were charged in the previous Spring Term shall not be charged a fee for Summer 2021.
