student financial aid Cost of Attendance

The Financial Aid Office has established student expense budgets, or costs of attendance (COA) based on whether a student will pay in-state or out-of-state tuition and has indicated (on the FAFSA) an intent to live with parents or not. Students can receive a combination of different types of aid rather than just one kind. This may include grants, scholarship money, work-study, or loans.

The total of financial aid awarded cannot exceed the Financial Need.

To determine your Financial Need the EFC is substracted from your Cost of Attendance. For example:

 

COA / Student Budget (fall & spring 2015-2015)
 $ 13,494   
Expected Family Contribution (EFC)  -         68  
Financial Need = $13,426  

 

academic year 2015-2016 (fall & spring)
