Please note: There was a small error in the 2014 brochure. The estimated costs for students living in the residence hall are between $1362-1495. If living off-campus, estimated expenses are $1062-1195 before any financial aid is applied. We apologize for this error. The PDF to the right lists the correct expenses.
