Costs

  • Perhaps one of the most daunting tasks associated with preparing to enroll in college is determining what it will cost.  The "big ticket" items like tuition, books, room and board are relatively intuitive.  But what about fees, personal expenses and transportation?  

    In this section students and their families will find information that not only sets out estimates of the costs associated with attending college for nine months, but also which expenses the Student Financial Services office used to determine a particular student's eligibility for financial aid based on the estimated costs at Seattle University.
