Cost of Attendance

Tuition and fees are combined with expected living expenses to create a standard cost of attendance. A cost of attendance is also referred to as a budget. A student's financial aid in an academic year may not exceed the cost of attendance. Financial aid includes merit-based aid, loans, outside scholarships, and grants.

*  The amounts listed are the prices for purchasing the University medical insurance for dependents. Students are not required to purchase the University insurance for their family members, but it is strongly advised that students provide comprehensive medical coverage for their family members. Therefore, the cost is included in the overall amount required for dependents.

In addition to tuition costs, students must have money to cover living expenses such as rent, food, books, health insurance, and other costs, and fund their travel to Delaware. We recommend that students budget $50,000 if they wish to complete the program in one academic year.

Scholarships are available.

Individual budgets may be altered to account for unusual or emergency situations that a student may encounter. These adjustments can only be made for expenses necessary for the student’s education. The student must fully document (copies of bills and detailed budget plan) any request for an increase in expenses.
