Tuition and Fees

What is Cost of Attendance (COA)?

COA is the amount it will cost a student to go to school. The cost of attendance is calculated once a year, to adjust for inflation, and it contains all components that factor into a student’s expenses for their period of enrollment. Components are divided as:

  • Direct costs, such as tuition, food, and housing (for on-campus), are charges billed by the university.
  • Indirect costs, such as transportation and personal expenses are not billed by the university but are expenses that a student can anticipate while attending college.

*The table above reflects direct costs for full-time students: 12-18 credit hours for undergraduates and six credit hours for graduates.

Direct and indirect costs combined create the total COA.
