Financial Aid Services

Cost of Attendance

  • Below are the student budgets, also known as the Cost of Attendance (COA) for 2014-15.
  • Each student is assigned a budget based on information provided on the Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA).
  • Student budgets are developed and approved through the Washington Financial Aid Association (WFAA). We are required to use these budgets when determining financial aid eligibility.
  • Subtracted from your COA budget is your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which was determined by the federal processor when you submitted the FAFSA.
  • The remaining amount is called your financial “need”.
    • In most cases awarded aid cannot exceed a student’s “need” and can never be more than the budget or Cost of Attendance.
