Understanding USU's Cost of Attendance

Even though a college education is an investment in your future, it helps to know how much things are going to cost so you can manage that investment. This page will show you the average expenses a full time student may experience in 2021-2022 in some of the programs available at Utah State. No two students are alike so things like room and board will vary from student to student depending on their individual needs and special circumstances. Some majors cost more than others so the amounts below represent our best attempt to come up with an average cost.

  • Off-campus costs are displayed first followed by on-campus costs.
  • Room and board includes things like rent, groceries or meal plans, and basic utilities.
  • Personal expenses includes things like clothing, entertainment, and other living expenses.
  • Transportation includes things like gas and basic vehicle maintenance.
  • Students who live at home or with relatives have smaller room & board components than what is listed below.
  • Undergraduates in the Western Undergraduate Exchange will be charged 150% of the in-state tuition amounts below.
  • Graduates in the Western Regional Graduate program pay in-state graduate tuition rates.
  • Amounts deducted up-front from student loans are taken into account when a student receives a financial aid offer.
  • Your individual/estimated cost of attendance will be displayed on a webpage that you can access from your financial aid offer email.
  • Your calculated financial need is your cost of attendance minus your FAFSA expected family contribution amount, which allows USU to determine your eligibility for subsidized loans, work-study, and etc.

Most of the components below can be modified by professional judgment. Daycare, childcare, and private school tuition can also be added to a student's cost of attendance. High out-of-pocket medical and dental costs that were recently paid can also be considered. Students in our flight programs can have their cost of attendance modified to include flight training. Students may also appeal for a one-time increase if they need to purchase a computer for their program. Not all increases result in additional Direct loan but may result in additional PLUS or private education loan eligibility instead.

Scholarship Displacement

Non-federal aid such as private or institutional scholarships, tribal funding, vocational rehabilitation, and etc. may affect eligibility for institutional aid, including student loans. Reductions to work-study, supplemental grants, and subsidized student loans are required when a student's total aid exceeds their financial need and/or cost of attendance. Additional reductions to PLUS, private, and unsubsidized loans may also be necessary.  We will notify students of such reductions by email. Students may appeal to increase their cost of attendance in such circumstances.
