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 each semester. 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.

A student's COA is made up of two different types of costs: direct and indirect.

  • Direct costs are items that will appear on the University bills, such as tuition, fees, books and room and board (if living on campus).

  • Indirect costs will not appear on the bill but are estimated costs associated with going to college and should be included in the budget. These include items like transportation, and personal expenses.
