We understand your concerns regarding the current financial aid delays, and we're sorry this is happening! We're committed to minimizing the impact on you and your family, and, if needed, we will change our FAFSA and college commitment deadlines. Our decision to change our deadlines will be announced no later than March 15. If you have any questions in the meantime, please don't hesitate to contact our Office of Undergraduate Admissions or Office of Student Financial Aid directly.


Following are our estimated expenses for 2024-2025. The exact amount you'll pay depends on your major, where you decide to live, the meal plan you choose, and your overall lifestyle. These estimates also don't account for financial aid.
