Cost of Attendance

Estimated Cost of Attendance

Cost of Attendance: (COA) is not the bill that you may get from your college; it is the total estimated amount it may cost you to go to college each year. COA will include direct costs and indirect costs. The COA is used by the college to help determine your annual awards and federal need. You may think of it as a budget.

Direct Costs: Expenses that will be paid directly to the college, such as tuition, course fees, housing and meals (if you are living on campus). Not all students will have the same direct costs as it could vary based on academic program, courses taken, and - if on campus - which residence hall assignment.

Indirect Costs: Expenses incurred due to college attendance that the student/family may pay to a third party other than the college, such as rent to a landlord, books and supplies, transportation, and miscellaneous personal expenses. (These items do not typically show on a student’s bill.)
