Cost of Attendance

The Office of Financial Aid conducts an annual review of 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 the cost of attendance. Because COA includes allowances for living expenses, it is not indicative of what the student will owe the Student Accounts Office. A complete listing of all charges and fees for the current academic year can be found here.
