2023 – 2024 Estimated Cost of Attendance

Full Time Graduate Student

The cost of attendance is an estimate of what it will cost to attend University of the West for an academic year. There are two types of expenses that make up a student’s cost of attendance. Direct expenses include tuition, mandatory fees, as well as food and housing (if you live on campus). Indirect expenses include off-campus food and housing expenses (living expenses), books, supplies, transportation, and personal expenses.

The cost of attendance is used to determine the maximum amount of financial aid a student may receive. A student cannot receive more than the cost of attendance from any combination of federal, state, institutional or private funding source. University of the West can allow certain expenses as the basis for increasing the student’s cost of attendance. Expenses that may be considered include reasonable childcare expenses, computer purchase, and high medical/dental expenses that are not covered by insurance.

Each student’s award letter includes the cost of attendance that was used to determine award eligibility. Should you have questions regarding how your own cost of attendance was calculated, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
