Graduate Cost of Attendance (COA)

Students Seeking a Master's or Doctoral Degree

A student's COA is determined by their enrollment status each semester. The four possible enrollment statuses are: 12 or more credits, 9 to 11 credits, 6 to 8 credits and 1 to 5 credits. When initial award offers are made it is assumed that graduate students will be enrolled in 9 to 11 credits. During the final review process the COA is adjusted to reflect the status a student reports in answering the financial aid questions in CyberBear. It may be adjusted again at the start of the term to reflect actual enrollment status.
