Estimating Tuition and Cost of Attendance

Tuition Calculator

Use the calculator below to estimate the cost of tuition.

Cost of Attendance

The CSM Financial Assistance Department constructs average financial aid budgets that include:

  • Tuition and fees
  • Books and supplies
  • Room and board (living expenses)
  • Transportation cost
  • Personal expenses

These budget items added together make up the Cost of Attendance (COA). The COA is not the actual bill from CSM; it is the estimated total amount it may cost you to go to college for the academic year.  The financial aid Cost of Attendance reflects an average cost for a student attending College of Southern Maryland full-time for the 9-month academic year. You can view your average cost by selecting the correct menu below. You can view the CSM Residency Policy here

NOTE: CSM does NOT offer dormitories/housing. For students attending less than half time (five hours or less) the cost of attendance excludes two items: Room & Board and Personal Expenses. All tuition and fees are subject to change by action of the Board of Trustees.
