The Cost of Attendance (COA) is the figure the Financial Aid Office uses to help determine your aid eligibility. This figure is an estimate of possible costs a student may incur over the course of the academic year. It is generally a higher figure than the Cost Estimator amount because it includes personal and miscellaneous expenses.
Use this page to estimate costs for tuition, housing, and meals based on current year expenses.
Unlike the Cost Estimator, the Net Price Calculator will help you figure total costs for the year by including all possible miscellaneous expenses in addition to tuition, housing, and meals. Gift aid, which is free money to help pay your costs, will be excluded from your total net price.
