Cost of Attendance/Budget

The Cost of Attendance is calculated based on both the actual costs (direct costs billed by the college) and reasonable costs (indirect costs) a student might incur while attending college. Below is a standard Cost of Attendance (COA) table for student who are enrolled full-time. The components will be pro-rated for students who are less-than-full-time.

In addition to illustrating the approximate costs a student might incur, the total Cost of Attendance/Budget also represents the ceiling or maximum financial aid a student may receive or have processed in a given academic year.

If you have questions or need to discuss unique costs you are incurring that are not included here, please contact our Student Financial Planning Office in the lower level of Poling Hall or call us at 309-457-2129.
