Brewing Science Certificate - Costs & Financial Aid

Investing in a high-quality, high-value USciences education is the first step to a successful career in one of today’s most in-demand science and healthcare professions. That value is evident in the successful outcomes of our graduates–who are proven everywhere they go.

It helps to understand the value of a USciences education when you understand the cost of attendance, which consists of both direct and indirect costs. Direct costs are those that will appear on your USciences tuition bill, and are required to be paid to the University, such as tuition, fees, housing and meal plan costs, and health insurance if applicable. Indirect costs include expenses for which you are not billed by USciences but are still necessary and will vary, such as books, supplies, transportation, personal costs, and off-campus room and meal expenses.
