*Health insurance is for the student. This fee can be waived if the student has his/her own insurance that meets University criteria. Spouses who enroll in the University-sponsored health insurance plan pay the same fees for health insurance and the mandatory health fee as the student. The fee to cover one child is $2,292, and to cover two or more dependent children is $4,584 for 2017–2018.

**Repatriation and Evacuation Insurance for Foreign Nationals. This fee is waived for students who are enrolled in the University-sponsored health insurance plan since repatriation insurance is included in the plan.

Financial Aid

Merit-based awards are provided by the academic department during the admission process, while federal and private loan funding can be obtained through the Financial Aid Office.

The application required for federal student loans is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available at Students who have completed their application materials will be reviewed for aid eligibility. Eligibility is determined based upon planned enrollment.
