Undergraduate Cost of Attendance (COA)

Students Seeking a Bachelor 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 undergraduates will be enrolled in 12 or more credits. The COA is adjusted to reflect a student's actual enrollment status during the final review process.

Because students at Missoula College are charged a substantially lower rate for tuition they have a separate COA.
