Cost of Attendance for One Academic Year

The cost of attendance for graduate school is an estimate of what it will cost for you to attend Regent University for one academic year. This includes both direct costs and indirect costs.

Direct costs are the actual price of tuition and fees.

Indirect costs are additional graduate school expenses you are likely to incur as a student. These include books and supplies, personal expenses, living expenses, and transportation. Your lifestyle can have a big impact on the cost of a graduate degree at Regent University. As you consider how to afford a degree, try to reevaluate your priorities so you can stay within your budget.

Tuition charges each year, plus the living expense budget constitute a student's cost of attendance. Total financial aid awarded may not exceed a student's cost of attendance.
