So, has the cost of furthering your education really gotten out of control? Is attending the U actually more expensive than years past? Don’t worry, we’ve searched through the archives and retrieved the numbers for you. And you’re going to be shocked.

The athletics department also relies on these funds for operational purposes. We might hate paying them, but miscellaneous fees give life to the U.
