Tuition plus cost-of-living, according to the university's budget, is $64,554 a year. That includes $43,784 for tuition and fees, $14,400 for room and board, $2,000 for books, $900 for travel and $3,470 for personal/other.
Re: [scheherazade] Funding News, Finally
The "year" they define as Fall and Spring semester. That said, every student I've talked with said you can live way, way, way under that for the full 12 months. Regardless, the student "builds" toward that goal with a combination of fellowships, outside aid, federal and private loans. Some, I'm told, with heavy prospective private loans, decide on going smaller than $64K. That seems dangerous to me in the first year.
Of course, this doesn't consider paid internships, work study and part-time employment -- all of which I'm told are abundant.
Hope that helps,
