Financial Aid Cost of Attendance for 2013-2014

The Cost of Attendance (COA or budget) for Financial Aid purposes is an estimate of the student’s overall expenses for a period of enrollment. It comprises direct costs, like tuition and fees that are charged to a student’s account, and indirect costs such as transportation or personal expenses.

Indirect costs included in a student’s budget are only estimates of what expenses a student might face during a year of enrollment (cost to rent an apartment, buy groceries, travel to and from campus), and vary widely based on an individual’s personal expenses. The COA listed on your award letter is NOT a bill or an amount you are expected to pay the school.

The Financial Aid Office uses these costs to determine your overall estimated financial need in order to try to meet that need with various forms of financial assistance.

Three annual COA examples are listed below (based on 16 credits a semester), but keep in mind that individual COAs vary based on state of residency, whether you live on campus, off campus or with parents, and your enrollment level (e.g., full-time, half time). Aid awarded by the Financial Aid Office cannot exceed the student’s designated COA in most cases. See also EWC’s Net Price Calculator to estimate total yearly costs based on your situation.
