Budget & Cost of Attendance

Plan Your Budget

As overall loan indebtedness continues to rise, it will be important for you to create a budget to help manage your spending and borrowing. As part of the planning process, review the cost of attendance for your graduate or professional program to give you an estimate of your program costs.

Estimated Cost of Attendance

The estimated cost of attendance varies based upon the program in which you enroll. Actual costs vary based on housing accommodations, travel costs, and personal expenses. Annual increases in the cost of a Notre Dame education are anticipated.
