The Cost of College

The table below outlines the estimated cost of attendance for the 2017–2018 academic year.

Keep in mind that tuition, fees, and room and board are direct costs to the University. In other words, you will receive a bill from the University of Rochester with those items listed as charges. Books, supplies, transportation, and other expenses are indirect costs. You won’t receive a bill from Rochester with those items listed, but we realize that students do have those additional items as expenses, so we include them in your estimated costs. Indirect expenses can be less depending on how well you budget during the academic year.
