» What is the Cost of Attendance?

A student’s Cost of Attendance is an institutional figure that is a part of determining a student’s financial Need.  The Cost of Attendance is comprised of tuition, general fees, books and supplies, room and board, personal expenses and transportation.  Additional items may be included depending on a student's individual circumstances.  Items that may be included in the Cost of Attendance are also outlined on StudentAid.ed.gov.  A student’s Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) is subtracted from the student’s Cost of Attendance to determine a student’s financial Need.  This calculation is the same at every institution that awards federal financial aid.  While the calculation is the same, the Cost of Attendance figure may create a different financial Need for the same student at different institutions.  The calculation is as follows:

Tuition and Fees + Living Expenses – EFC = Financial Need

The Cost of Attendance is not a student's actual charges.  The Cost of Attendance is strictly used by the Office of Financial Aid to determine financial aid eligibility.  These figures may not be directly reflected on a student's bill.
