According to the Department of Education’s Student Financial Aid Handbook, “The Cost of Attendance (COA) is an estimate of a student’s educational expenses for a period of enrollment”. A student’s COA is used to determine financial aid eligibility. The basic components of an Eastman student’s COA include tuition and fees, books, housing, food, miscellaneous (travel and personal) expenses.
The COA may be adjusted on an individual basis for dependent care, study abroad programs and loan fees. These adjustments will only increase a student’s loan eligibility. All adjustments must be supported by documentation. Students who wish to be considered for a COA adjustment for any reason should contact the Financial Aid Office to discuss both the change and the additional loan eligibility that may result.
For detailed information about the costs of a graduate degree at Eastman, please see the Billing & Fees page of the University Bursar’s Website. If you would like more information on financial aid for graduate students, please visit the Prospective Students page of our website.
