Graduate Cost of Attendance, 2019-20

The Cost of Attendance (COA) is an estimate of educational expenses for the nine-month school year that is used to determine eligibility for financial aid. The COA includes tuition (based on the number of credits for which the student enrolls) as well as an estimate of costs for other educationally related expenses. As an example, the 2019-20 COA for a graduate business student enrolled for six credits each term and residing off campus is as follows:
