Cost of Attendance
The Cost of Attendance (COA) is provided as a guide when estimating the costs of specified programs at Pepperdine University. The COA is based on normal charges incurred by most students; however individual charges may vary based on the student's choice of housing, meal plan, program of study, total units enrolled, and other miscellaneous items.
All expenses are estimated costs for the first full year of your academic program and calculated for the purpose of the issuance of the Form I-20 which is required to obtain your F1 student visa.
- Tuition is based on the tuition cost per unit rate for the 2023-24 academic year and the total units you will be expected to take during the first full year of each academic program.
- Living costs are estimated expenses that include housing and food calculated for the first full year of your academic program.
- Other costs are estimated expenses that include books, supplies, transportation, personal expenses, the University wellness fee and health insurance for the first full year of your academic program.
Note: If you have a dependent, please add $1,000 per month for each dependent ($12,000 for the first full year of study) to the total cost of attendance. All rates are subject to change.
Please note that tuition and fees are updated annually and those and other living expenses are expected to increase annually.
For international students, financial aid provided by Pepperdine University is limited
to scholarships that may have been awarded upon admission. Additional/emergency funding
will not be available after enrollment. As such, students should ensure they can fund
the entirety of their education and living expenses.
