The COA is based on federal guidelines and is utilized to determine a student's eligibility for financial aid. Listed below is the estimated COA for the 2016-2017 academic year which will be used for budgeting purposes. Please note that the COA is updated annually (March) and does not include anticipated expenses for spouses and dependents.
