The Cost of Attendance is sometimes referred to as a student budget. This is an estimate of the total amount of your educational expenses for the period of enrollment during the Award Year and is reflected on your financial aid award letter.

The Cost of Attendance assumes full-time enrollment and will be reduced if you enroll less than full-time. The Cost of Attendance includes estimates of tuition and fees, the average cost for books, course materials, supplies, and equipment, housing, food, transportation, and miscellaneous personal expenses.

Direct costs are those billed by the University and posted to your student account. Indirect costs are estimated costs that are incurred outside of the University, such as transportation and books.

+ Drew University will bill students for direct charges which include tuition, fees, and room and board. In addition to billed charges from Drew, students will need to pay for other expenses such as books and supplies, transportation, and miscellaneous costs (like laundry and personal care items).
Final tuition and fees are set annually in June by the Drew Board of Trustees.

NOTE: Students may appeal to include the cost of a one-time purchase of a computer for school use. However, including the cost of a computer does not guarantee that you will have enough funding to pay for the purchase of a computer after your other charges are paid. Only if you have aid in excess of tuition, fees, room and board (if you contract with the school) will you receive a refund to assist with the purchase of a computer.

For direct costs, please view the Student Accounts Office’s Official Tuition and Fees website.
