Cost of Attendance

Terms to Know

Your financial aid award is based on your COA. Each student may log into AP OneStop to view their COA, as well as actual charges once the billing cycle for the term has begun. Use our Estimated Cost Calculator to estimate charges for a future semester.

The COA is based on criteria such as in-state or out-of-state, undergraduate or graduate, and/or living on or off campus. The University uses rules established by the federal government when determining COA.

All students are initially packaged with a full-time COA. COA's are recalculated according to actual enrollment beginning one week prior to memo of aid. It is then recalculated daily until the first day of class and again at the census date. If you are not enrolled full-time on any recalculation date, your financial aid may be reduced and a billing created to your student account.

Example student COA for an in-state, on-campus, undergraduate student:

Tuition and Fees $7,932.00
Books and Supplies $1,550.00
Room and Board $9,711.00
Personal Expenses $2,000.00
Transportation $2,538.00
Total Expenses: $23,731.00
