The Cost of Attendance (COA) are estimated costs of being a Full-Time Undergraduate or Graduate student at SOU for 2018 - 19. The figures are based on three terms (Fall, Winter, and Spring). 

Graduate budget figures are used only for students admitted to a master's degree program. Postbaccalaureate students and those pursuing a second undergraduate degree are given an undergraduate budget.

Students seeking a certificate, license, or other non-degree program are not eligible for Financial Aid. 

Until approved by the State Board of Higher Education, all tuition and fee estimates are subject to change.
