Per federal regulation, the Financial Aid Office uses a Cost of Attendance (COA) to process financial aid for each period of enrollment in a program.
The COA is an estimate of total direct and indirect costs, Students are charged only for direct costs (tuition and fees). Indirect costs (room and board, travel, and personal) are those expenses that may incur while attending school. Indirect costs vary from student to student and are based on personal living style and arrangements. Indirect costs are not charged to the student.
In order to determine the maximum amount of aid allowable during the period of enrollment, the college includes tuition and fees as well as an estimate of additional expenses that may be incurred while attending school. All sources of aid that a student may qualify for (such as federal, state, scholarships, agency, and other types of aid) are applied toward the maximum amount of aid.
**The COA is not the actual cost to attend SCI
