Cost of Attendance

A student’s COST OF ATTENDANCE (COA) is an estimated average of educational expenses for a period of enrollment. Cost of attendance will differ among students. A student’s cost of attendance does not mean the student will pay those exact costs, or that the student will be awarded enough financial aid to cover all costs. The student will be awarded what they are eligible for based off of their financial need (See explanation of financial need below). The purpose of federal student aid is to provide supplemental financial assistance to students who without aid may be unable to attend college. The primary responsibility for meeting the cost of a higher education lies with the student and his/her family.

Students that are not full time will have lower COA’s. Out of State students’ cost of attendance will reflect the difference in tuition/fees rates.

 

Financial Need – is the difference between the cost of attendance(COA) and the EFC (expected family contribution).

Expected Family Contribution – is a measure of your family’s financial strength and is calculated according to a formula established by law. Your family’s taxed and untaxed income, assets, and benefits (such as unemployment or Social Security) are all considered in the formula. Also considered are your family size and the number of members who will attend college during the year.
