Cost of Attendance

Components of the estimated cost of college attendance include tuition and fees, living and personal expenses, textbooks and materials, and other possible expenses. Depending on whether or not you live on campus and other factors, the cost of attendance varies and is just an estimation. The Office of the Bursar manages and delivers your tuition bill each semester you are enrolled.

See the current estimated cost of attendance at the University of Louisville.

Net Price Calculator

The Net Price Calculator (NPC) is a valuable tool for understanding estimated costs and expenses including possible federal financial assistance you may receive or be eligible for. The net price of attending UofL can vary depending on other aid you receive based on need or academic achievement.
