Cost of Attendance

The Cost of Attendance is our estimate of the total cost to attend SU for one academic year. This estimate includes tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, transportation expenses, and personal expenses. It is important to remember the Cost of Attendance is only an estimate.  A student’s costs could vary depending on individual spending habits for expenses not billed directly by SU, such as books, clothing, and recreation. The Cost of Attendance also represents the maximum amount of financial aid a student can receive, including scholarships, grants, student and parent loans, and work-study.
