Estimated Cost of Attendance

Your Cost of Attendance (COA) is the Office of Student Financial Aid Services’ estimate of your educational expenses for the aid year. Based on your enrollment, you will be billed each semester by the Bursar’s Office for tuition, fees, on-campus housing and meal plans, if applicable. Indirect costs such as books, off-campus housing, transportation and miscellaneous expenses are not payable to UConn and are estimated to establish your COA and to help you and your family plan for the overall cost of your education. Students who are less-than-full-time will have certain expenses adjusted based on the number of credits for which they are enrolled, usually after the end of each semester’s add/drop period. Students who anticipate less-than-full-time enrollment should communicate with the Office of Student Financial Aid Services to ensure that their COA and financial aid packages are as accurate as possible. Below are the estimated costs of attendance for the indicated academic year. Complete the Interactive Financial Aid Worksheet to determine if a balance is due.


Undergraduate, Storrs Campus (2017-2018)

The total Cost of Attendance (COA) includes estimated direct educational costs and an estimate of indirect costs based on full-time attendance at Storrs for both fall and spring semesters. The housing and meal plan amounts are an average of the cost of the various options for the year. These figures do not represent your actual fee bill but are estimates and subject to change. Please note that students are billed separately for each semester; therefore, the annual amounts described below may be divided by two to determine estimates for a single semester. In order to reduce these costs, we encourage you to choose the lowest price options for housing rates and meal plans.

Submit the completed/signed form along with a signed lease or mortgage agreement to the Office of Student Financial Aid Services. We will evaluate your residential status and notify you of any modifications to your financial aid package. Please note that most forms of financial aid are awarded on a funds available basis.
