This is an estimate of the cost to attend FPU. This estimate includes tuition and fees, as well as room and board for traditional undergraduate students. Award amounts offered reflect a two-term, full-time cost of attendance. (These are estimated costs only and subject to change based on factors such as dining plan chosen, actual credits taken, etc.) The actual charges you can expect to see billed to the student account by FPU will only be tuition and fees and room and board (if applicable) on a per term basis. The standard cost of attendance may be adjusted for differential tuition for specific programs, and for students participating in approved study abroad programs.

Please Note: Cost of Attendance figures are used for budgeting purposes only and represent an estimate of projected tuition and fees for the coming academic year. Actual tuition rates are approved by the Board of Trustees and may vary.
