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, and 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.

The Tuition and Fees component of the COA for the 2014-2015 Academic Year are based on the Board of Trustees approved Tuition and Fees as of February 26, 2014 .
