Cost of Attendance

Review a breakdown of potential costs as a Relay student over the course of the year.
Relay is a cost effective option

Schools that participate in the federal student aid program are required to provide information on their cost of attendance. The total cost of attendance is consistent for all half-time enrolled students. Eligibility for aid varies based on the specific program that you are enrolled in. The vast majority of our students will have out of pocket tuition costs at Relay within the $3,500- $9,000 range for the full academic year. The 2019-2020 cost of attendance is listed below.

  2019-2020 Academic Year Summer Fall Spring
Tuition & Fees $17,500 $5,800 $5,850 $5,850
Room & Board $32,435 $6,487 $12,974 $12,974
Transportation $444 $89 $178 $178
Books & Supplies $81 $16 $32 $32
Certification Costs $978 $196 $391 $391
Total Cost of Attendance $51,438 $12,588 $19,425 $19,425


The cost of attendance limits the maximum a student can request in federal financial aid per term. This includes a combination of a student's institutional aid, outside grants and scholarships, and anticipated third party payments. The total of all awards, including federal aid requested, cannot exceed the cost of attendance.

Federal financial aid requested in a given academic year cannot exceed $20,500 (Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans and Federal TEACH Grants). To help determine your maximum federal aid request eligibility, please use your award letter to complete this worksheet.
