Cost of Attendance

We want to provide our students with a valuable education, while also saving them money and minimizing college loan debt. The table below illustrates tuition rates based on the student’s residency classification and includes 15 credits per semester for two semesters.

“It has been the most cost effective decision I’ve ever made coming to school here. You get a really great education and I get to work with these very talented musicians that we have for faculty without burying myself in debt.”
