Cost of Attendance

What is the Cost of Attendance?

The Cost of Attendance (COA) is an estimate of costs associated with attending the University for a given enrollment period (e.g. one term and/or one academic year). There are (3) standard student budgets: Commuter (i.e., living at home with parents), On-campus, and Off-campus.  In addition to tuition and fees, each budget contains student expense allowances for books and supplies, room and board, miscellaneous/personal, and transportation for the duration of attendance.

Please note, all tuition and fees should be considered as estimates and are current at the time of publication.  Tuition and Fees are subject to change without prior notification.
