Costs of Attendance (COA)
The Cost of Attendance is an amount used to determine your maximum financial aid eligibility for an academic year. The COA consists of standard school expenses (tuition, fees and books) and an estimate of a student's standard living expenses (housing, food, transportation, and other miscellaneous expenses). Each student's financial needs are different, so the estimated COA may be less depending on the student's circumstances.
Fordham University adjusts COA amounts annually based on a combination of factors including data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and other sources. It is meant to provide for moderate, but reasonable living expenses in the NY area.
We have projected a full Cost of Attendance (COA) including an average of additional expenses a student might incur.
