Loan fees are not calculated in the average cost of attendance. For 2015-2016, the undergraduate loan fee is around $70.00 and the graduate and law loan fee is around $162.00.  These numbers are based upon the average Stafford loan amount for the previous academic year per career.

Effective Fall 2015, an increase in tuition of 3.0% was approved along with an increase in mandatory fees (including an increase in the facility fee from $10 to $12) that equates to a 3.8% increase combined tuition and fees.  While mandatory fees increased the same as for resident students, out-of-state tuition increased by 7.5% equating to an overall increase of 7.5%
