Cost of Attendance is an estimate of the total amount it will cost a student to attend Siena for a year before financial aid is deducted. Most of our students pay much less than the listed tuition thanks to the many scholarship and grant opportunities for Saints. The best way to get an estimate of your actual cost to attend Siena is by using the Net Price Calculator.

Cost of Attendance has two components: Direct Costs and Indirect Costs. Direct costs are charges billed directly to you by the College such as tuition, housing and food. Indirect Costs will not appear on your bill, but are estimated costs associated with going to college and should be included in your budget. These include items like books, transportation and personal expenses.
