The Cost of Attendance (COA) is an estimate of educational expenses for the nine-month academic year. Allowable expenses are defined by law and are limited to university charges and allowances to accommodate a moderate student lifestyle. The cost of attendance is the maximum amount of aid permitted from all sources during the school year. While the COA cannot be increased to meet non-educational obligations, documented extraordinary expenses and special needs may be considered.

  • A one-time allowance for computer equipment may be added under specified conditions.
  • In compliance with federal regulations, WCL’s policy is to use an average of loan fees charged to all borrowers and included this as part of each student’s cost of attendance.

In determining how best to cover expenses, consider the budget in its entirety with thought of adjusting expenses in one category to meet costs that may be higher in another. It should be noted that the room and board allowance assumes a shared housing accommodation. Enrollment in six credit hours per semester is required for receipt of financial aid.
