Your Unique Cost of Attendance
The cost of college varies from student to student. ASU defines cost of attendance as the estimated full and reasonable cost of completing an academic year as a full-time student, including your tuition and fees, room and board, and books and supplies, plus other costs like personal expenses and transportation.
The following table outlines estimated costs of attendance for first-year undergraduate students living on campus, associated with one year of full-time study at ASU’s W. P. Carey School of Business (2016-2017):

|Base Tuition and Fees||$10,370||$26,470||$28,270|
