UC Costs 2013-14

The fees listed were either approved by the Board of Trustees on 06/25/2013 or by the President via the Special Fee Approval process. Tuition, housing and insurance rates begin fall 2013, unless otherwise noted.

Tuition is set by the university though colleges, program level (undergraduate, graduate or professional), or the course of study itself may involve specialized fees. In addition to the overview below, it may be helpful to view Fees by College to view details on your program and be aware of any college-specific fees.

Year amounts would be the typical fall + spring semesters as summer is generally optional. Full-time enrollment year-round would be 3x term rate or year + term rate.

NOTE: Year-round enrollment required changes in loan processing beginning with 2013-14.

Tuition Overview

Tuition is the combined amounts for instructional, general, technology, and campus life or distance learning fees as well as appropriate non-resident surcharges.

Along with the overviews below, more detail on specific fees for your program, special course fees, and distance learning program fees are also available via the Bursar Website.

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 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 $1,570 for books and supplies, $542 to $1242 for transportation, and between $4,030 and $7,935 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 an on-campus, full-time undergraduate, Ohio resident for the basic 2-semester academic year is $28,358.

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 Money Matters* worksheet found on our Forms and Publications page.

Tools like Money Matters* with information from your Financial Aid Award (including adjustments for part-time or co-op enrollments) can help you in planning for out-of-pocket expenses related to your bill.
