Cost of Attendance

Your Costs

The Cost of Attendance (COA) is the total amount it will cost you to go to school—usually stated as a yearly figure.

COA includes tuition and fees; on-campus residence hall and meal plan (or a housing and food allowance for off-campus students); and allowances for books, supplies, transportation, loan fees and dependent care.

It also includes miscellaneous and personal expenses, including an allowance for the rental or purchase of a personal computer; costs related to a disability; and reasonable costs for eligible study-abroad programs.
