Cost of Attendance (COA)

Every college is required to have an official Cost of Attendance (COA). The COA for the academic year is used to calculate eligibility for federal grant and loan programs.

The cost of attendance (COA) reflected below is used to calculate federal financial aid eligibility and reflects the average costs for an individual student, living either on- or off-campus, to attend BYU full time for Fall and Winter semesters combined (Fall, Winter, and Spring combined for EMBA program). The total COA is adjusted down as one's enrollment level drops below full time.

Your actual costs to attend BYU may vary depending on the different choices you make for housing, books, transportation, and personal expenses. The BYU Financial Fitness Center offers tips on how to manage your finances while in school. BYU also offers employment opportunities for students. Many students find that they are able to pay for school through different combinations of employment, family assistance, savings, and financial aid.

Federal Pell Grants, in combination with scholarships, can be awarded up to and beyond your COA. Student loans cannot exceed your COA.
