Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance (COA) is determined by the institution and includes allowances for tuition and fees, books, course materials, supplies, and equipment, living expenses, transportation, and personal expenses. The COA components and budget amounts are assessed annually by the Director of Financial Aid so that the costs of receiving a higher education are accurately and realistically represented to students. While actual expenses will depend on your lifestyle and level of enrollment, the estimated costs listed on this page should assist you in planning your own budget.

COA is calculated each term to reflect a student’s level of enrollment and dependency status. Prior to enrollment, Full-Time status (12 credit hours per semester) for tuition and fees is assumed. Following enrollment, the tuition and fees charged on the student’s account are calculated for the student’s budget.
