Estimated Cost of Attendance

The estimated Cost of Attendance (COA) includes both education and education-based fees. Tuition and fees are subject to change each year and are not fixed until approved by the University Board of Trustees, usually in May. The COA will be used to determine total federal financial aid eligibility.
