Cost of Attendance (COA)

We subtract your FAFSA Expected Family Contribution (EFC) from Evergreen's Cost of Attendance (COA) to determine financial need and eligibility for financial aid. 

The Cost of Attendance (COA) is an estimate of how much it will cost a student to attend Evergreen for an academic year. The Financial Aid Office tries to award students up to their cost of attendance. Financial aid cannot exceed a student's COA. If you have expenses that are not included in your COA, look at our forms page under Appeal for More Financial Aid to see if any of these additional expenses fit your need. This will allow us to increase your COA to make room for additional funds, usually loans.

What the Cost of Attendance (COA) consists of

  • Tuition and Fees
  • Books/Supplies
  • Living Expenses
    These expenses include room and board, transportation, mandatory fees, loan fees, and miscellaneous.

The COA is also based on whether you are a resident or non-resident, graduate or undergraduate, attending full or part time, and whether or not you are living at home.
