How to calculate your cost of attendance

The cost-of-attendance calculation helps us determine your eligibility for need-based financial aid. The figures are an estimate that consider multiple factors including whether you’re a full-time or part-time student, whether you live on or off campus, and whether you’re a dependent or independent student.

The figures aren’t intended to reflect final costs. Instead, the cost-of-attendance calculation is an estimate of what your potential cost to attend Roanoke would be prior to any financial aid.

Students who are interested in their specific cost estimate are welcome to contact the financial aid office or use our online Net Price Calculator.

Factors considered when estimating a student’s cost of attendance include:

Direct costs: These are the tuition and fees (listed above) that are billed directly by the College. These costs include tuition, housing, meal plans and campus fees.

Indirect costs: These are costs that aren’t billed by the College but could become part of your budget. They include off-campus housing, transportation to campus, personal computers and books.

To estimate indirect costs, the College uses the following figures:

  • Room and board (off-campus): $15,564
  • Room and board (w/ parents): $13,554
  • Room and board (independent student): $15,752
  • Books: $1,000
  • Transportation: $1,250
  • Personal spending: $1,000
  • Personal computer: $1,800 (used in calculations for first-time students only)
