 Personal/Transportation:  Personal costs vary from $1,864 to $4,208 depending upon dependency status, degree program and place of residence while attending Simpson College. Depending upon whether the student lives on or off campus, or with parent, transportation costs allowable for financial aid purposes vary from $1,410 to $1,870.

 Off-Campus Room/Board:  Costs for off-campus room and board vary depending upon dependency status and type of living arrangement (i.e., with parent, in an apartment, etc.).

Continuing and Graduate Program Students:  Students who take at least 12 credits in a given semester (with 6 or more credits being day time classes) are charged at the full-time tuition rate. To qualify for financial aid as a full-time student, enrollment must be 12 or more credits per semester (with 6 or more credits being day time). Part-time students (those taking less than 12 credits per semester) are charged on a per credit basis. Day and evening credits are charged at different rates.
