The figures above do not include medical insurance, which is required and costs $1,800 for the 2021-2022 academic year, or books and supplies, for which students should budget approximately $1,000 per year. Also not included above are orientation fees ($230) or personal expenses, which each individual student ultimately determines. We recommend that students budget at least $1,800 for these.
