Cost of Attendance
The term Cost of Attendance (COA) refers to an estimate of total expenses that students may incur while attending school for the academic year which will include direct institutional costs as well as indirect costs. This estimate is utilized in the mandated calculation to determine a student's eligibility for Title IV Federal Financial Aid programs consisting of grants and work-study; however, students may wish to refer to these estimated expenses to assist in their budget planning process. This estimated COA includes an average of tuition, mandatory fees, books/supplies, and indirect expenses such as housing, transportation and child care.
