How Financial Need is Determined
To qualify for financial aid, students must demonstrate financial need which is defined as the difference between the Cost of attendance and the expected family contribution. The expected family contribution is determined by information provided on the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).
Every student budget is based on the cost of attendance for students who meet specific domicile or program criteria. The cost of attendance is determined as follows:
|Average Tuition and Fees||$3,780|
|Books and Supplies||$1,364|
|Cost of Attendance *||$17,066|
* This cost of attendance is based on 2017-18 figures. The COA changes annually. The illustration above is for an in-state student. The average COA figures for each year may be obtained from the Financial Aid office. Individuals with questions about COA used in the calculation of their aid award should contact the Financial Aid office.
