2019-2020 Cost of Attendance
Governors State University's Office of Financial Aid uses what is called a “standard cost of attendance budget” to calculate your estimated educational costs. A standard cost of attendance budget represents typical costs for students during the academic year.
This standard cost of attendance budget includes both direct and indirect educational costs for the nine-month academic year.
- Direct costs: items that will be charged by GSU, including tuition, fees and estimated on-campus room and board.
- Indirect costs: items such as books and supplies, off-campus housing, transportation, and personal expenses. These are estimates based on average expenses incurred by students in the local area. Indirect costs are not paid to the university.
