Net Price Tuition Calculator

Get an estimate of what your CityU tuition would be in just a few minutes with our Tuition Calculator. This calculator is designed to provide an estimate of the net price to attend CityU as a full-time student during the current academic year. The calculator is meant to be used as a tool for prospective students, and does not represent a final determination, or actual award, of financial assistance. Nor does the estimator consider CityU need- or merit-based scholarships, corporate, military, or partnership discounts that may be applied to the cost of attendance. Contact an admissions advisor to discuss these and other financial aid options that may be available to you. View the Tuition Calculator.
