Estimated Cost of Attendance, 2016-17

In addition to tuition and fees, students should plan for the normal costs of living, including room and board, transportation and personal expenses. An estimate of those costs is shown below:

Room and board $18,501
Books $1,000
Transportation and personal expenses
Health insurance $2,000 (estimate)
TOTAL $24,501

Adding this figure to your tuition and fees will give you an approximate cost of attendance per academic year. Students attending classes during summer sessions will have additional costs — both in cost of attendance and tuition and fees.

For example, a full-time student in the Rabbinical School will incur the following cost of attendance:

Tuition $27,990
Registration fee $220
Room and board $18,501
Books $1,000
Transportation $1,000
Personal expenses $2,000
Health insurance $2,000 (estimate)
TOTAL $52,711
This figure may be conservative if you have more personal expenses, live in a more expensive apartment or home, etc.
