Cost of Attendance?

My URSA account says it's around 24,000. What is the approximate amount of what I'll really spend? Thanks in advance!

    You will pay for tuition and housing as the major categories. Books are overestimated if you know what you are doing.

    Transportation could be cut down, so $21,000 is a better estimate, in my opinion.

    19,000 was about what I calculated on spending. I think that number went closer to 20,000 because of misc costs that I didn't expect to ever have to pay for.

    depends on your lifestyle.

    You can get by with as much or as little as you want. Its up to you.

    Just add up tuition + housing and whatever else u spend.
