Every student's budget and cost will be different and will vary depending on the number of credit hours & terms for which the student plans to attend during the year (period of enrollment). Additional items such as books/supplies, personal/living expenses, and transportation costs will also affect other costs you may incur during your time at TC. Note that these additional budget items, unlike tuition and fees, are variable expenses for you to determine how they would be factored in and covered by your financial aid as needed.
