Financial Aid Estimated Cost of Attendance (includes direct/indirect costs)

The U.S. Department of Education requires that Financial Aid Offices establish a cost of attendance (COA) in calculating your eligibility for financial aid. COA is an estimate of projected costs that a student may incur while attending college. Student budgets are differentiated by residency, classification, and enrollment levels. COA contains both direct costs (tuition and fees, food and housing, books, course materials, supplies and equipment) and indirect costs (transportation, loan fees, and miscellaneous personal expenses). Indirect costs are dependent on other factors (example: loan fees are included in your budget but is dependent on whether or not you accept a loan).

Northwestern’s yearly financial aid budget is determined by using estimated tuition and fees, a semi-private room, 12 meals per week, books, course materials, supplies and equipment, transportation, loan fees, and personal miscellaneous expenses for the entire academic year. COA is not actual costs billed from the university Bursar. You cannot take out loans or accept scholarships beyond your cost of attendance.
