What is the cost of attendance (COA), how is it determined and how much is it?

The COA is an estimated individual student’s projected total educational expenses for a two semester time period. The COA is also referred to as the Financial Aid Budget.

The cost of attendance (COA) for Financial Aid purposes is constructed by the Financial Aid Office using the parameters of the federal guidelines. The COA includes tuition, fees, room and board, books, transportation, and personal expenses. This COA governs the total amount of aid (loans and scholarships) that are available to a student for any two semester period. This maximum COA also applies to private loans

We realize that students come to law school from varied backgrounds, experiences and lifestyles, however the COA allows for a simple lifestyle, that of a graduate student and cannot be increased to suit your desired lifestyle.
