Cost of Attendance

Each year FGCU develops student expense budgets (cost of attendance), using U. S. Dept. of Education guidelines. These are used to determine students' financial need at FGCU. Student expense budgets include approximate tuition and fee costs as well as allowances for the cost of books and supplies, transportation, food, housing and personal expenses.  These expense budgets represent the maximum amount of financial aid that students may receive from all sources, including student loans.

The variable factors that are used to construct the student expense budget include:

  • where the student lives (at home with their parents, on-campus, or off-campus).
  • the student's legal state of residency.
  • the student's enrollment status (the number of credits for which the student enrolls).

Please select the appropriate level to see the Cost of Attendance:

Independent students who incur expenses for dependent care (either child care or elder care) may have their expense budget adjusted.

The schedule of tuition and fees at FGCU is available on the FGCU Office of the Bursar web site
