Financial Aid

Estimated Cost of Attendance

Cost of Attendance (COA) is an estimate of the total amount of expected costs for the school year. It is determined annually, using the rules established by law, and estimated using your program of study, enrollment and housing plans.

The COA includes tuition and fees; on-campus room and board (or a housing and food allowance for commuter students); and allowances for books, supplies, transportation, loan fees and miscellaneous expenses. A student's total financial aid assistance from all sources is limited to their COA.
