​​Tuition Calculator

​The AUB Tuition Calculator is designed to help prospective students better plan for their educational costs. The Calculator takes into consideration the tuition rates that vary between different Faculties/Schools and student level. Additional living expenses during the study period are also incorporated.

The Tuition Calculator is intended to provide an estimate of the total educational cost of attending AUB and includes tuition fees; dorms; books and supplies; and living expenses such as food, transportation, and other miscellaneous costs.

The calculation is based solely on the information the student enters into the system, creating a rough estimate of a semester/academic year total cost.
