Cost & Financial Aid

We want to help you achieve your dreams. Because supporting successful students is important to us, we offer a number of scholarships. Additionally, we encourage you to consider other ways to pay for college, including state and federal financial aid. Here are some resources to help you understand the cost of college—and ways you can cover some or all of the costs.

To find the tuition amount when using the Calculate your Costs link:

  • Undergraduates: Select “All other undergrad programs”
  • BioHealth and Human-Centered Computing graduate students: Select “All other graduate programs”
  • Library and Information Science students: Select “Library and Information Science program”

First: Complete the FAFSA

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid is the first step students take toward funding their education.

When you submit your FAFSA, you’ll automatically be considered for a variety of state and federal financial aid programs, including grants, work-study positions, and loans.

Make sure to submit your FAFSA every year.
