The Cost of Attendance (COA) is determined by the Office of Student Financial Services and is based on the average costs that a student will incur during the academic year. Included in the COA are average tuition and fee costs, room and board allowance, books and supplies, transportation, and personal/miscellaneous expenses. The actual cost will vary depending on whether a student chooses to live at home with their parents, or independently. Transportation costs will also vary depending on proximity to the campus and mode of transportation.
