Cost of Attendance
A student’s Cost of Attendance (COA), also known as the student’s budget, is an estimate of the student’s educational expenses for the period of enrollment and includes the following components: tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, transportation, health insurance and miscellaneous expenses. The COA is determined using rules established by federal regulations and is based on average expenses for students with a similar academic workload and living arrangements, rather than actual expenses. This number is used by the school to determine the maximum amount of financial aid a student can receive for the current academic award year. Please remember student financial aid is designed to meet the most basic educational needs of students and is not designed to fully support a student and his/her family. The budgets listed below are based on full-time enrollment. Your budget may vary based on your actual enrollment status.

Contact our office if you have any special circumstances that you believe would warrant an increase in your COA; but remember student financial aid is designed to meet the most basic educational needs of students. Our office will approve requests on a case by case basis. Additional documents and/or receipts will be required. Some expenses cannot be covered with educational aid, so you will need to have an alternative source of funds (savings, family support or spousal income) to pay for these costs. The following is a list of expenses that can be used to increase your COA.
- Child Care Expenses: You may request that reasonable child care costs be included in your budget.
- Computer Purchase: You may be reimbursed for a one-time purchase of a computer up to $1,650.00.
- Away Rotation Expenses: available only to College of Medicine Students.
- Residency Budget Expenses: available only to College of Medicine Students.
- Northwest Campus Moving Expenses: available only to College of Medicine and College of Pharmacy students required to move to the Northwest campus for the completion of their program. The funds will be disbursed during the student’s second year.
