Estimated College Costs

Academic Year 2018-19

The cost of attendance is the total estimate of both direct (billed) and indirect (non-billed) costs for enrollment as a full-time student at SUNY Geneseo. We sometimes call it the "budget" because it is an estimate of what a student/family may spend during one year at Geneseo. This is used for financial aid eligibility and IS NOT a bill.

The student billing notice is calculated based on the direct costs only one semester at a time. Fall bills are sent to students in early July. Spring bills are sent to students in November. For billing and payment information, visit the Student Accounts Office website.

For the 2018-19 Academic Year, we estimate the following total costs for undergraduate students.
