Cost of Attendance

Cost of Attendance (or financial aid budget) is a combination of direct expenses (such as tuition and fees) and indirect expenses (such as books and personal expenses) a student will incur to attend NDMU. Each student’s actual expenses may vary, but Cost of Attendance provides an estimate of the cost of attending Notre Dame of Maryland University for an academic year.

Cost of Attendance is determined using a formula established by the U.S. Congress. All expenses are for the nine-month school year. Costs are subject to change without notice.

The Office of Financial Aid uses average budgets to calculate financial aid. Average budgets are based on a student's anticipated average enrollment. A student cannot receive more than the cost of attendance from any combination of institutional, federal, state, or private funding source. This includes merit and need-based aid as well as tuition remission, VA benefits, and ROTC awards.
