Your student budget is the amount of money we estimate you will need for tuition, books, and living expenses for the 9-month academic year (October-June). Student budgets include only the student's educational costs; other family members' expenses cannot be included in the budget.

The figures below are subject to change each academic year. Please check with the Medical and Dental schools for costs associated with those programs. Budgets for prior years are also available.
