Tuition fee at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT)Alot of guys are having confusion in the fees structure of RIT. I will try to explain how your expenses may be calculated. I'll take the example of my Telecommunication program.
RIT's telecommunication program has 33 credits.
RIT's cost per credit = 1554 / credit.
Total RIT's tuition expense = 33 x 1554 = 51282$
Take any random scholarship % say 30% given. This scholarship is the percentage of our tuition expense. And this scholarship as confirmed by RIT officials remains for the entire duration of the program provided me maintain satisfactory grades.
New Tuition Expense = 51282 x 0.7 = 35897.4 $
Add 2000$ miscellaneous to the tuition.
Then our Tuition Expense becomes 35897.4 + 2000 = 37897.4 $
Living Expense comes around 500$ per month. Say we complete our MS in 3 semesters i.e. 18 months. Total living expense = 18 x 500 $ = 9000$.
Add 1000$ miscellaneous to it. Hence New Living expense = 9000 + 1000 = 10000$
So total Cost of Attendance at RIT = 37897.4 + 10000 = 47897.4 $ (max).
Now RIT has plenty of part-time jobs available. The above cost can be cut down say you work 10 hours per week i.e. 40 hrs per month earning 8-10 say 9$ per hour. So total earning in a month with on-campus jobs = 9$ x 40 x 18 months = 6480$.
Also, if we manage to get a co-op, they are normally for 3-6 months and we earn approx. 2000-3500$ per month for that duration. This will further reduce the cost. -- Remus
