Cost of Attendance

There are two categories of costs in your total budget:

1) Direct costs for which you receive a billing statement from the Quinnipiac University Office of Student Accounts such as tuition, student fees, course fees, and applicable registration fees.

2) Indirect costs you may incur but for which you do not receive a billing statement such as books, supplies, personal expenses, transportation expenses and off-campus living expenses.

These estimates are for educational expenses and are, therefore, used when calculating financial aid eligibility. It is important to note that you will only be billed for the direct costs at Quinnipiac University.
