  • The Office of Financial Aid uses an estimate of your cost to attend (COA) college as a basis for awarding your aid. Your cost of attendance is developed according to guidelines established by the Dept of Ed, your state residency, housing, and degree level. Some costs, besides those allowed in the standard cost of attendance, may serve as an obstacle to completing your degree. To make adjustments to your COA, complete this form.
