Cost of Attendance
Your Cost of Attendance is a budget based on an average of direct and indirect costs, such as tuition, fees, books, housing, meals and other miscellaneous expenses. This isn’t what you’ll pay MTSU, but a realistic estimate of all of the costs associated with going to college. Your Cost of Attendance determines in part how much financial aid you’re eligible for.
