Cost of Attendance

What Is a Net Price Calculator?

SU's and are free online tools that give you a personalized estimate of net price.

How Does SU's Net Price Calculator Work?

SU’s net price calculator asks you questions about your family’s finances and may also ask you questions about your GPA, test scores, activities and other things that may qualify you for financial aid. It uses your answers to figure out how much money in grants and scholarships may award to you. Keep in mind this is only an estimate and not inclusive of any other institutional or academic department scholarships available at SU and does not take into account other types of gift aid you may be receiving from the state or other organizations.

Undergraduate Cost of Attendance (Fall/Spring)

There are two types of costs considered in the financial aid process: direct costs and indirect expenses. Together these costs represent the official cost of attendance (student budget). We encourage all prospective students and their families to evaluate SU's net price. The net price reflects the actual out-of-pocket expense to attend SU after removing grants, scholarships, and other educational benefits from the "sticker" price.

The figures below are ESTIMATED 2024-2025 costs per year for fulltime (12+ credits per semester), on-campus, undergraduate students. Financial aid for undergraduate students is packaged under the assumption that a student is attending full-time each fall and spring semester.
