Text - Cost of Attendance for Undergraduate Students; circles and arrows in background

The Cost of Attendance is an estimate of a student's educational expenses for their period of enrollment. It establishes average costs for different categories of students (i.e. full time vs. part time, in-state tuition vs. out of state tuition, etc) and is the cornerstone for determining a student's financial need for "need-based" grants, loans, and work-study. It also sets a limit on the total federal aid that a student may receive.
