Cost of Attendance

Cost of Attendance

The federal government requires schools to estimate what it costs to attend college. These figures form the foundation upon which we can award financial aid. In our estimate, we include average figures for tuition, fees, books and supplies, room, board, transportation from a reasonable geographic area, expenses for basic personal needs and student loan fees. Since we use averages, some students will have costs that are less while others will be higher than those used. Yet the basic budget figures shown in our budget chart are consistently used for all students in like categories.

Some students have special circumstances which might affect their financial aid cost of attendance. Items such as loss of income can be considered for adjustments to the basic budgets.

Items like high charge card or monthly bills, expensive rent, purchase, or lease of an automobile, and costs related to another family member cannot be included as expenses factored into the budget along with many more discretionary costs too numerous to fully list.

Sometimes the best cost of attendance adjustment is a change of lifestyle. If education is truly your first priority, showing that in your financial practices makes a big difference. Trimming discretionary expenses is like giving yourself a scholarship; it makes your financial aid dollars stretch further. Consider this during college and become a financial and academic winner.
