Estimated Cost of Attendance

Estimated Cost of Attendance (COA) is a student’s estimated cost of attendance that is used to establish financial need, and sets a limit to the amount of financial aid a student may receive. The College used 30 credit hours for the 9-month calculation and 15 hours for the 3-month calculation. Tuition and fee rates are provided by the Business Office HERE. The COA is an estimate/average dollar amount which includes estimates of standard expenses such as tuition, fees, books, supplies, room, board, and personal expenses, such as clothing, transportation, etc. Students must have unmet need to qualify for Title IV aid.

Additional cost information and estimates are available via the Net Price Calculator. Cost of Attendance includes both direct (billable) and indirect (estimated) costs for two semesters, generally fall and spring. Direct costs may include tuition, fees, books, and some supplies which are billed by the College. Indirect costs include off campus living expenses, transportation, loan fees, and other personal/ miscellaneous expenses. All these costs associated with COA vary by student and that is why the COA is an estimate of costs, not an actual cost.

COA figures are estimates and are subject to change. COA is originally estimated based on full-time enrollment and will adjust according to actual enrollment status.
