Cost of Attendance Samples

When you apply for federal student aid, the Financial Aid Office uses your cost of attendance (COA) in determining how much aid you can receive. The COA is the total estimated cost for a student to attend a particular school – expressed as a yearly figure. It is determined using rules established by law. The following tables reflect sample costs of attendance for students taking course work at Eastern Iowa Community Colleges.
