$75,001 to $110,000
The average net price of the institute is US$25,687. It is however important to understand that the figure you see is actually not the amount that you have bear in real.
We also make this a bit easier for you to understand this; we have segregated the net price with respect to family income. Family incomes generally under US$30,000 can expect an average net price around US$16,543. When the income range is between US$30,001 to US$48,000, you might expect the average net price to be around US$20,220. An income ranging from US$48,001 to US$75,000 might face an average net price of US$19,858.
Similarly, family income of the range US$75,001 to US$110,000 will have to bear an average net price of US$27,064. The average net price for any family income ranging on and above US$110,000 might go up to US$27,994.
