Cost of Attendance and Net Price Calculator

Information about program costs, both direct (payable to the school) and indirect (what you should estimate when planning the total cost to attend CSI) is outlined below. We also offer a web tool called the Net Price Calculator or NPC to help you estimate your costs and financial aid as a first-time student.

DIRECT STUDENT EXPENSES 2014-2015 Academic Year
Direct costs include the following:

Business Career Program Healthcare Career Program Networking Career Program
Tuition and Fees $13,950 $14,950 $14,950
Books and Supplies $1,500 $1,500 $1,500
$15,450 $15,950 $15,950

In addition to these direct costs, you will have some indirect expenses such as transportation, and personal items. These expenses will not show up on your billing statement, but you should budget for them accordingly.

Student Estimated Living Expenses

Most of a student’s indirect costs are living expenses. Students would likely have these expenses whether or not they were attending school. The school will NOT bill students for these costs, they are simply estimates to help students plan for living costs and other and out-of-pocket expenses while attending school. These amounts are estimates. Your costs may vary.
