Cost of Attending UC

The cost of attending UC consists of direct and indirect costs. Direct costs on your semester bill are tuition (instructional, general, technology, campus life, and program fees), room and board (for students residing on campus), and health insurance (if minimum insurance coverage is not documented). Attending college also includes indirect costs. Items such as books and supplies, transportation and parking, personal expenses, and off-campus rent are part of your budget though they will not be billed by the university.

In addition to the direct fees detailed above, we recommend you budget approximately $1,500 for books and supplies, $500 to $725 for transportation, and between $3,800 and $5,000 for personal expenses per academic year. Ranges reflect issues such as if you live on-campus or commute and are co-oping or not. Your overall budget essentially covers costs of tuition through toothpaste. The total amount we budget for a typical on-campus, full-time undergraduate, Ohio resident for the basic 2-semester academic year is $28,754.

Remember that what you actually spend in non-billed expenses may differ from the amounts budgeted by the Student Financial Aid Office. You should plan your finances to meet your expenses. One way to more accurately reflect your expenses is to utilize the 2015-16 Money Matters* worksheet that will be posted to our Forms and Publications page once all fees are approved by the Board.
