Cost of Attendance
Below, you'll see estimated costs for students enrolled in College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences (CAHSS) programs.
We do not automatically assume students in CAHSS will take courses in the summer quarter, so you won't see those costs listed below. Eligibility for financial aid for the summer is limited; if you need aid for the summer term, you must complete a separate application in the spring.
