Budget/Cost of Attendance

Your Cost of Attendance (COA) is an estimate of the total amount it will cost you to go to college and includes the following:

  • Tuition and Fees  
  • Room/Board
  • Books & Supplies
  • Miscellaneous (includes Loan Origination Fees and Parking)
  • Transportation
  • Personal


Resources/Expected Family Contribution

The Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is a term used to express the dollar amount that a family is expected to contribute to a student's education. This figure is determined by the federal government using the information reported on the FAFSA. While completion of the FAFSA is the only way to have an official EFC calculated, you can have an estimated EFC calculated by using FAFSA4caster.
