Tuition & Aid
Bottom line

In-state tuition falls below the $10,000 mark, while out-of-state tuition is still manageable at $25,300. Add to that about $10,460 in room and board costs and an additional $1,200 in books and supplies, and those in state can expect to pay $21,000 a year, while those out of state will put out about $34,000 a year. Some 31 percent of freshmen receive need-based grants or scholarships, and 33 percent receive non-need-based grants or scholarships. Students graduate with an average debt of about $20,500.
