The Cost May be Even Less
*This estimate assumes paying the full cost of in-state tuition and fees for the first two years ($10,986/yr. x 2 yrs. = $21,972), with the last two years tuition-free. With other sources of financial aid available in the first two years, total actual cost may be significantly less.
