Financial Aid

Cost of Attendance

  • Each college or university determines an estimate of how much it will cost to attend school. An estimated cost of attendance (COA) is designed to assist students with their educational expenses for the academic year.
  • An estimated cost of attendance includes direct and indirect costs. Direct costs include charges a student pays directly to the university, for example, tuition and fees. Indirect costs include expenses the student will likely incur but will not pay directly to the university. Transportation is an example of an indirect cost.
  • Each student's cost of attendance is based upon full-time enrollment and residency. After the drop and add period each semester, the cost of attendance will be reduced to reflect less than full-time enrollment.
  • The cost of attendance is not a final bill but is an estimate of educational expenses for the period of enrollment.
  • 2017-2018 tuition and fees are subject to approval by the NC Board of Governors.
