Cost of Attendance
2012-2013 Cost of Attendance
- Each year the Financial Aid Office determines the cost of attendance (COA) for the academic year.
- This COA includes tuition and fees as well as an allowance for room and board, books and supplies, transportation and personal expenses. Financial aid, including the Direct Graduate PLUS Loan, cannot exceed this cost of attendance.
- Because this COA includes allowances for living expenses, it is not indicative of what the student will owe the Student Accounts Office. Here is a complete listing of all charges and fees.
A sample budget for a day student living away from parents is:
|Tuition and fees||$44,230|
|Room and board||$16,038|
|Books and supplies||$1,370|
|Total cost of attendance||$71,702|
Typical financial aid award:
|Direct Unsubsidized loan||$20,500|
|Direct Grad PLUS||$51,202|
|Total financial aid offered||$71,702|
