Cost of Attendance

What is the cost of attendance (COA)?

For the University the COA is an estimated budget determined by the University to calculate a financial aid award.

For the Student/Parents the COA is used to help understand what it will cost to attend that University.

The COA is based on a full-time credit load and is made up of direct and indirect costs that relate to the UMD’s estimated budget figures for an academic year.
