Cost & Payment

Cost of Attendance

Each year the Office of Financial Aid creates a Cost of Attendance (COA). The COA represents an estimate of average expenses a student may have for the academic year. It includes direct expenses such as tuition, housing and food, and indirect expenses such as books, transportation and personal expenses. The COA is based on full-time enrollment and will be adjusted for students with less than full-time enrollment. Your eligibility for need-based financial aid is determined by reviewing your FAFSA data and your Cost of Attendance (COA).
