Indirect Costs are the average living expenses students may
incur while attending Butler; items such as books, transportation

may choose to have the bookstore charges billed by the

Explanation of Costs
Estimated room and board is based on the average double room in
Ross, Schwitzer and RESCO, and the full meal plan.
Transportation costs are based on the average of five round
trips per academic year from home to campus. With students
living on both coasts, this cost can be skewed for students who may
live within driving distance.
The amount listed for miscellaneous expenses are an average of
what our students tell us they are spending during the academic
year. This would cover pocket money for incidental expenses
and would vary based on the individual's spending.
