Financial Aid

What's Included in the COA

As dictated by Congress, the COA is the average cost to attend for one academic year (fall through spring). It includes tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, transportation, and personal expenses. Colleges adjust the COA yearly to reflect changes to these costs.

How the COA Drives Your Financial Aid

The school subtracts your Expected Family Contribution from the COA to calculate your need for financial aid. Please note that, regardless of COA, Federal Title IV grants and loans are subject to limits established by the US Dept. of Education based on EFC, grade limit, enrollment and dependency status.

Your Own COA May Be Different

Colleges create several official COAs that reflect differences in living costs (on-campus, off-campus, or at home) and in-state and out-of-state tuition. Your actual cost to attend might be more than the official COA depending on your major, participation in extracurricular activities, and travel expenses.
