Cost of Attendance

Costs of Attendance Budgets are estimates of the educational expenses incurred by students during the nine-month academic year. These budgets include direct university charges (tuition, fees and on campus room and board) and estimates of indirect expenses (transportation, books, supplies, miscellaneous living expenses, and off-campus room and board). Actual College Park tuition and fees can be found by contacting the Office of the Bursar.

Note: Only undergraduate students who are pursuing their studies in business, engineering and computer science will be charged additional tuition based on credit hours. Get additional information and a breakdown of these charges here.

Colleges and programs with non-standard tuition and fees such as College of Information Studies, Office of Advanced Engineering Education, Office of Extended Studies - Professional Programs, Real Estate Development, Robert H. Smith School of Business, School of Public Policy may be different. Please check with the corresponding departments for the Cost of Attendance of their programs.
