Estimated Cost of Attendance

The estimated cost of attendance (COA) is an amount used to determine a student’s financial need when awarding need based financial aid programs.  The COA is not the amount the student will pay to Thomas More College.   COA is composed of direct cost and other out of pocket expenses.  Direct costs are paid directly to Thomas More College for tuition, room/board (for resident students) and fees (i.e. technology fee, publication fee, lab fees and orientation fee).  Out of pocket expenses consist of an allowance for books/supplies, transportation, personal expenses, and room and board if you do not live on campus.  Your estimated Cost of Attendance and the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as derived from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) are used to determine financial need.  COA- EFC = Financial Need

**Remember, The COA is not the amount the student will to pay Thomas More College. COA is composed of direct cost and other out of pocket expenses the student may incur.
