Cost of attendance with fixed-rate tuition For full-time traditional students

Traditional undergraduate students receive fixed-rate tuition, which means their tuition is locked at the rate it was when they started, for up to five years.

The cost of attendance for students taking day classes at our Columbia campus will vary depending on whether they live on campus. The following amounts include current housing and meal plan rates plus estimates of transportation and personal expenses. They are not intended to represent what you will actually pay.
