Cost of Attendance 2022-2023:
The Cost of Attendance (COA) for a student is an estimate of that student's educational expenses for the academic year. The COA is not the same as a bill. An academic year is estimated to include the costs for a both Fall and Spring semester. Students will be responsible for their bill each semester, which will include direct College charges: tuition and fees, and if applicable, book advances - see Book Advance Program for more information.
The cost of attendance budget, as required by the Department of Education, includes an estimate of tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, transportation costs, and any additional costs of the program in which the student is enrolled. Students who are attending the College for the first semester are also given an estimate of one-time costs that should be budgeted by the students. One-time costs are included for only the first semester of the student’s enrollment, no matter their enrollment status, and include but are not limited to estimated costs for laptop, uniforms, and supplies.
Each student's cost of attendance budget is calculated using the higher of the enrollment status within an academic year. For example, if a student takes Full Time classes in Fall and Half Time classes in Spring, their Cost of Attendance budget will reflect Full Time budget for that academic year.
If a student has a special circumstance that should be considered for an adjustment to the cost of attendance budget, students should contact the Office of Financial Aid to discuss this in more detail and will be given directions on how to process a request for a Cost of Attendance Appeal.
