Student Budget and Costs of Education

Cost of attendance budgets include average costs associated with all of the educational
expenses a student will incur during the academic year. This includes tuition and
fees, room and board, miscellaneous personal expenses, books and supplies,
local transportation costs.

Why is Cost of Attendance Important?

Cost of Attendance or the standardized budget is important because it is used to help determine your “Financial Need” and the types and amounts of financial aid that makes up your Financial Aid Award.

How is “Financial Need” Determined?

Cost of Attendance (COA) – Expected Family Contribution (EFC) = Need

Dropping Classes

Based on Federal Regulations, students who receive Federal Grants and have received
payments and drop classes prior to the 60% completion of the semester may be required
to repay a portion of the aid they received. Failure to repay or make payment arrangements
by the deadline given will result in the student becoming ineligible to receive
any Federal student aid at any institution until the overpayment is resolved.

Return to Title 4 (R2T4)

Based on Federal Regulation students who receive any type of federal student aid
and drop and or stop attending ALL their classes prior to 60% completion for the
semester, will be responsible to repay any portion of aid the college is required
to return to the Department of Education as a result of them withdrawing or stop
attending from classes.  In addition students who stop attending before the
60% completion of the semester and receive ALL F, W, and or NP grades may also owe
money back to the Department of Education.

Students are encouraged to check with Financial Aid Office on the impact of
dropping classes prior to actually dropping them
