Cost of Attendance

The Cost of Attendance (COA) is an estimate of school-related expenses the student can expect to have for the academic year, or semester of enrollment. The COA is composed of the following categories: tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, transportation, and some personal expenses. These components are determined by law, Higher Education Act of 1965, section 472, and are designed to cover the educational-related expenses of the student. In addition, the cost of attendance will consider the residency status, living arrangements (i.e. living with parents, on campus, off campus), and, in some cases, the student’s major
