Term Definition
Cost of Attendance
Certain financial aid programs (e.g., TAP, APTS and Veterans Tuition Awards) cover tuition only. Other programs cover a student’s cost of attendance.

The cost of attendance includes both direct costs and indirect costs. Direct costs are billable charges that student must pay to the school. Indirect costs are expenses incurred that must be paid separately by the student.

Cost of attendance generally can include tuition, room, board, books, fees, and an allowance for transportation.
