Cost of Attendance (COA)

The Cost of Attendance Budget is used by the Financial Aid Office to determine a student’s need.  It is not the actual cost to attend Virginia Union University.  The Cost of Attendance is an estimate of the total amount it will cost you to go to school—usually expressed as a yearly figure. It’s determined using rules established by law. The COA includes tuition and fees; on-campus room and board (or a housing and food allowance for off-campus students); and allowances for books, supplies, transportation, loan fees, and, if applicable, dependent care. It also includes miscellaneous and personal expenses, including an allowance for the rental or purchase of a personal computer. Costs related to a disability also may be covered. The COA includes reasonable costs for eligible study-abroad programs as well. For students attending less than half-time, the COA includes tuition and fees and an allowance for books, supplies, transportation, and dependent care expenses, and can also include room and board for up to three semesters or the equivalent at the institution. But no more than two of those semesters, or the equivalent, may be consecutive.  Visit one of our financial aid administrators at VUU if you have any unusual expenses that might affect your cost of attendance.
