Looking at the total projected cost of a college education over the course of two / four (or more) years can feel a little overwhelming. However, doing so will help better prepare you for the financial commitment you are making.

The overall cost for on-campus students to attend Duquesne in 2020 - 2021 was $59,104. To calculate future costs, we looked at the prior five years of data and determined that this cost increased an average of 3.3% each year. If this trend continues, we expect the full cost for incoming freshmen to be $63,118 during their first year. By their senior year, that cost will be approximately $69,656 for a bachelor degree candidate ($65,226 for an associate degree candidate) for a total of $265,405 over the course of four years ($128,344 over the course of two years). These numbers do not take into consideration financial aid, which reduces this overall cost by varying amounts per student.

Remember, the full costs quoted above are not what most students will pay, and the net price varies quite a bit based on individual circumstances.
