Cost of Attendance

The Cost of Attendance is used to calculate the maximum amount of financial assistance you may be eligible to receive, and is determined in accordance with federal guidelines provided by the U.S. Department of Education. The COA includes the total estimated cost of tuition, fees, room, board, books, supplies, transportation, and personal expenses for one academic year.

The following Estimated Cost of Attendance (COA) figures are provided to assist you with your financial planning. These figures are for one academic year (September – May) based on full-time (12-18 credits per semester) enrollment. Your total financial aid award (including all scholarships, grants, loans, and other awarded financial assistance) cannot exceed the total COA based on your housing status provided on your FAFSA. These are estimated costs, it is strongly recommended that you review your individual financial needs before borrowing any student loans and borrow only what you need. When planning your educational costs, it is essential that you also plan for future repayment of any amounts borrowed. For COA based on less than full-time enrollment, click here.
