Tuition and fees
Cost of attendance
The Financial Aid Office estimates your yearly cost of attendance (COA) to determine how much financial aid you may receive. We use your housing type as reported on your FAFSA and your residency status as determined by the Office of Admissions and the Registrar to estimate your costs for tuition, room, board, fees, books, supplies, and miscellaneous expenses. This estimate is based on full-time attendance for the fall and spring semesters. Your actual costs may be more or less depending on how many credits you take, your housing expenses, and many other factors.

If your actual yearly costs are more than what we estimate, you may complete the budget revision request form (PDF) with required documentation to have your COA raised. Note that this does not necessarily mean that more financial aid is available for you.
Some scholarship and student loan organizations ask you to include your COA in your application. You may use this chart as an easy reference. To determine your COA find the number where your student type row and housing type column meet.
