Cost of attendance (COA)

For the 2018-19 academic year (summer, 2018, fall 2018 and spring 2019)

Click here for 2017-18 COAs.

Determining your cost of attendance

We base our financial aid awards (scholarships, grants, work-study and loans) on cost-of-attendance estimates or “budgets.”

Financial aid awards are based on the cost of attendance for an academic year (defined as two semesters, fall and spring) as determined by:

  • the student's housing status,
  • enrollment status,
  • FAFSA dependency status,
  • and program of enrollment (e.g., Main Campus vs. Wayne, etc.).

The scenarios: The tables below show estimated/average costs for students enrolled at varying degrees of enrollment status, housing status, student type, and campus location. 

Actual expenses will vary due to housing choice and other factors. The total amount of financial aid offered may be more than what you need to pay your bill.

Worksheets: To help you determine your expenses and how much financial aid you will need, we have created financing worksheets for you.
