Cost of Attendance

A Cost of Attendance (COA) budget is a budget of reasonable expenses you may incur and represents the maximum amount of federal aid funding you may receive while attending CWC.  It is not the actual bill from the school for a student’s education.  The Financial Aid Office develops the budgets for each academic year.  The inflation rate and expected increases in all categories of included expenses are taken into consideration.  In addition, the Department of Education has established guidelines that are followed in calculating allowable educational expenses.  The COA includes tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, transportation, and miscellaneous personal expenses. The following budget amounts are averages.  The amount a student actually spends, except for tuition, fees, and books, is up to him/her and depends on the lifestyle chosen.
