Cost of Attendance

Tuition and fees are combined with expected living expenses to create a standard cost of attendance. A cost of attendance is also referred to as a budget. A cost of attendance sets a limit on the amount of financial aid a student can receive in a given academic year. Financial aid includes merit-based aid, loans, outside scholarships, and federal workstudy.
