COST OF ATTENDANCE

The total amount it will cost a student to go to school for the academic year is known as the Cost of Attendance (COA). The COA used by the Financial Aid Office to determine your financial aid eligibility may exceed your actual direct charges by the university because Financial Aid looks at all allowable expenses to build a budget even though the student may not actually incur all of these expenses. The COA can also fluctuate depending on the student's residency, enrollment and housing.                    

2011-2012 COA:  Please note: Costs are listed per YEAR.  Costs are based on full-time enrollment (12-18 credits per semester for undergraduate students, 9 credits per semester for graduate students)
