Cost of Attendance (COA)
The estimated total amount it will cost to attend an institution. It is determined by Financial Aid rules established by the Department of Education. Cost of Attendance is based on average costs incurred by students and it includes tuition, room/board, books, transportation, and personal miscellaneous expenses. This figure is used solely for the determination of financial aid and does not represent a figure you will owe the College.
