How much am I expected to contribute as the student?

General Financial Aid

Students who receive financial aid are expected to contribute a minimum amount annually, which should come from leave-term earnings and a percentage of the student's reported assets. Leave-term earnings expectations range from $1,000 to $2,500 per year.

In addition, nearly all financial aid awards include employment eligibility, which gives students the opportunity to work on campus and earn money during the academic term to help cover their indirect costs, like travel, books, supplies, etc. Students are typically expected to earn $2,450 during the academic year, or about $817 per term.
