  • View detailed listings of estimated fees, supplies, living expenses, and cost of attendance (COA) for domestic and international students.
  • Your Cost of Attendance (COA), is used to calculate your maximum Financial Aid eligibility. Certain expenses and situations may allow you to increase this total COA budget, including having a spouse, child care, and/or computer expenses. Many students work out financing arrangements that cover 80% to 100% of the full cost of attendance, but each student must apply for aid to determine their own eligibility.
