Cost of Attendance

Your Cost of Attendance (COA) is an estimate we make based on a combination of factors. The COA is critical part of the formula in how we determine your eligibility for need-based financial aid.

The Estimated COA includes costs of tuition, books and living expenses for the full academic year. Your COA will be reduced based upon your level of enrollment and number of quarters you attend.

The figures below reflect the average COA for the 2016-2017 year.
