Cost of Attendance

Braniff School of Liberal Arts Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance is the cornerstone of establishing a student's financial need as it determines the limits on the total aid a student may receive for the purposes of state, federal, and campus based aid.

The cost of attendance is an estimate of each student's educational expenses for the period of enrollment. If you would like to see actual charges, please check Student Account Services' Tuition page.


For the 2019-2020 academic year

Based on 6 credits (though half-time status and thus loan eligibility begins at 4.5 credits) each for fall and spring. Students can request to have his or her budget adjusted to account for greater-than-half-time enrollment or to include half-time summer enrollment by contacting the Financial Aid Office.
