Cost of Attendance 2024-2025

Cost of Attendance (COA), which is a Department of Education term, is the budgetary foundation upon which financial aid offers are built. Unlike the term would imply, COA may not equal the cost to attend. It contains direct costs that you will see on your statement like tuition, fees, food, and housing (if approved to live off campus, you will not be billed for food and housing), and indirect costs that are estimates of discretionary expenses to help a student estimate costs to attend OKWU that you will not see on your statement (like transportation and personal).
