Cost of Attendance
The Cost of Attendance is an estimated budget of a student's expected education and essential living expenses. This budget, as determined by the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships, represents the maximum amount of financial assistance a student can receive in a specific academic period. The Cost of Attendance budget can vary by student and is subject to change throughout the year based on regulatory changes, the availability of new information, or other factors. Please note that the Cost of Attendance does not represent a bill or a list of charges from ESF. Each student will be billed for specific charges by the Bursar's Office and other service providers at the start of each academic semester.
Below you will find the most common budget amounts based on full-time student status for the 2020-2021 academic year. Please note that dependency status is determined by Financial Aid Regulations and is not a choice for the student or family.
