Estimated Costs

Academic Year 2019-20

The cost of attendance is the total estimate of direct costs for enrollment as a full-time student at SUNY Geneseo.  It is NOT your actual bill. Actual costs may vary depending on living arrangements, selected meal plan and course load.

The total cost of attendance includes both direct (billed) costs and indirect (non-billed) expenses such as books, personal and transportation. It is used when determining financial aid eligibility. Indirect expenses are estimated to be approximately $3500 for the 2019-20 academic year.

The student billing notice is calculated based on the direct costs for the semester. Fall bills are sent to students in early July and are due on August 1st. Spring bills are generated in November and are due on January 1st. For billing and payment information, visit the Student Accounts Office website.

Note: First year students are required to have a notebook computer. If you wish to purchase a laptop from Geneseo or elsewhere, this cost could be added to your total cost of attendance. You will be referred to a private education loan to cover the cost. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid for more information.
