Direct vs. indirect costs

Direct costs are charges that appear on your tuition bill (i.e., tuition, fees, housing, meal plan).

Indirect costs are other educational expenses (i.e., books, supplies, personal and travel expenses).

For financial aid purposes, the estimated cost of attendance budget is based on both Direct and Indirect costs. Both are taken into consideration in your financial aid package to help meet your total estimated cost of attendance. Total costs will vary based on your choice for meals (i.e., meal plans, self-prepared), housing (i.e., living on or off campus), travel (visiting your family or others) and other out-of-pocket expenses.

Note: financial aid and cost of attendance is calculated using nine months of attendance; 12 months if attending summer session.

Note to international students:

As a public university, Binghamton University is able to offer an elite education at a fraction of the cost of U.S. private schools. International students are not eligible for federal/state funding; however, we encourage you to refer to the information maintained by the Office of International Student and Scholar Services Office (ISSS) which may be helpful to you.

If a student visa is required to enroll, international students must submit an International Student Financial Statement (110KB) and an official bank statement verifying their ability to meet all education and living expenses for the first year of study.
