Cost of Attendance

The Cost of Attendance (COA) is an estimate of what it will cost you to go to school based on residency, enrollment, and housing status. This includes fixed amounts for tuition and fees and amounts that must be estimated, such as personal expenses. The Financial Aid Office uses these costs to develop standard budgets for awarding financial aid funds. The total amount of financial aid awarded cannot exceed your COA.

COA includes the estimate of:
