The estimated budget covers the cost of attendance, including tuition and fees and an estimated cost for living expenses in the Pasadena area. Several estimates are given — for living on campus in a single, double and quad apartment, and another for an off-campus apartment. These estimates are based on the best information available from the Institute and surveys of housing costs in the surrounding community.

*First-year students should anticipate additional relocation set-up expenses of about $3,000. Some campus apartments will come furnished with the basic needs, but you will need to supply your own linens and personal items.
*Under the current Internal Revenue Code, stipends are subject to income tax, but the tuition is not taxable.
*Personal expenses includes the health insurance contribution and dental insurance. The majority of the health insurance costs are subsidized by the Institute, but students are responsible for a portion of the costs. For the most recent rates, please refer to the Benefits website.
