Fees, Expenses, and Estimated Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance (COA) is the cornerstone of establishing a student’s financial need, as it sets a limit on the total aid that a student may receive from the Federal, State, and Institutional financial aid programs at Co-Lin. The COA for a student is an estimate of that student’s educational expenses for the period of enrollment. The allowable costs that make up the COA budget are: Tuition, fees, books, supplies, transportation, housing, meals, and  personal miscellaneous. The current COA for full-time enrollment is:  In-State Dependent: $9840; Independent: $10,640 – Out-of-State Dependent: $ 12,190; Independent: $12,990.  If a student attends the summer term, then the COA will increase up to an additional $4292 for the award year.
