*These estimated costs are used to calculate the “total cost of attendance” during the program. This amount is used to determine a student’s maximum federal and/or private loan amount. We understand that as working professionals who most likely live and work in the area already, these are not additional expenses, but rather expenses that can be included as you determine your loan borrowing needs.
