Estimated Cost of Attendance, 2017-2018

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 $18,722
Books $1,000
Transportation and personal expenses
Health insurance $3,984 (Based on 2016-17 price)
TOTAL $26,706

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 $28,970
Registration fee $220
Room and board $18,722
Books $1,000
Transportation $1,000
Personal expenses $2,000
Health insurance $3,984 (estimate)
TOTAL $55,896
This figure may be conservative if you have more personal expenses, live in a more expensive apartment or home, etc.
