Cost of Attendance
Cost of attendance (COA) is the maximum amount of financial aid and scholarships a student can receive. COA includes tuition and fees, room and board, allowances for books and supplies, transportation, and miscellaneous/personal expenses. Students with an unusual expense that might affect their COA can contact Financial Aid to determine if an increase is appropriate.
Note 1: A computer cost may be added for students who purchase a computer for their major or residential college. The computer does not have to be required by the college or major to be added to the COA. The cost may be given each year with documentation of purchase of up to $1,151.
Note 2: A cost for Federal Loan Origination Fees will be added for those students who accept a Federal Stafford Direct Subsidized, Unsubsidized, and/or Plus Loan.
