The Cost of Attendance (COA) for a student is an estimate of that student’s educational expenses for the period of enrollment. The COA is not the same as a bill. The COA is the college’s estimate of what your total costs will be for the year. It sets the maximum amount of financial aid a student can receive for the year. In other words, it represents a modest budget on which a student can live adequately while attending AC. Students will be billed directly by the school only for tuition and fees.
AC’s COA includes:
- Tuition and fees based on enrollment status
- Allowance for an average room and average board costs (Off Campus)
- Allowance for books and supplies for a student carrying the same academic workload
- Allowance for transportation costs
- Allowance for miscellaneous/personal expenses
- Average Federal Loan Feees
