Regional College Costs of Attendance

Below are the "sticker" prices for colleges in Idaho and the greater Pacific Northwest. It is important to note that students very rarely will pay the whole sticker price per year for school. These totals are before aid packages are added in. We use Cost of Attendance because it is very important to consider living expenses of where you may be going to school. Underneath the table of figures are links to individual college costs webpages. Students are encouraged to investigate costs on their own. 

Here is a comprehensive guide to cost of attendance figures for northwest colleges and universities: 

What makes up Cost of Attendance?

Cost of Attendance is several costs put together for a general figure. Those costs include tuition and fees, room and board (rent/dorm+food),personal costs/health insurance (if required; can be waived if covered by another plan), transportation, books and supplies, and estimated miscellaneous costs. It is important to note that these are estimated costs and each individual's costs will vary.  If you have any questions about these costs, please stop by and see Ms. Peterson or Ms. Chynoweth in the Career Center!
