Cost of Attendance

Need Determination

Your completed FAFSA will be reviewed to determine your financial need. Financial need is the remaining balance once the estimated family contribution has been subtracted from the cost of attendance:

1. Cost of Attendance (COA)

Includes tuition, fees, on and off campus room and board costs, and additional allowance for books, supplies, transportation and personal expenses.

2. Estimated Family Contribution (EFC)

Independent graduate students' families include the student, spouse, and dependent children if applicable.

(COA – EFC = Financial Need)
