COST OF ATTENDANCE

Cost of attendance (COA) is an estimate of what it costs the typical student to attend North Central Missouri College for a period of enrollment. COA covers more than just college tuition and fees; it takes into account a student’s basic living expenses as well.

When comparing financial aid packages from other schools, it’s important to compare the total costs of attending each school, not just the total financial aid they have awarded. NCMC encourages students to be financially fit by using a budget to help them make smart choices when it comes to money. COA is a general budget that students can use to help them plan for expenses while in school.

It’s important to review and understand COA as schools are prohibited from providing students with a total financial aid award which exceeds their cost of attendance.

Understanding the terms of COA

  • Tuition and Fees: The average cost of tuition and fees for a typical student based on enrollment in a certain number of credit hours per year. The actual costs a student incurs varies depending on the number of hours the student enrolls and the tuition rate for the course. (Refer to NCMC’s cost sheet.)
  • Books and Supplies: The average cost of books and supplies for a typical student for an entire academic year. Typically includes books, educational supplies, course materials, and computer-related expenses excluding the purchase of a personal computer.
  • Room and Board: A reasonable estimate of what it would cost to live while attending school. Actual costs may vary by individual choices related to location and circumstances. Typically includes rent, food, household supplies and utilities.
  • Transportation: Represents travel home for the specific number of trips NCMC estimates per semester.
  • Personal/Miscellaneous Expenses: Estimate of costs other personal expenses including clothing, entertainment and other miscellaneous expenses. What you actually spend on these types of items may be higher or lower depending on your own personal lifestyle.
  • Direct Costs: Those out of pocket expenses paid directly to the college (tuition, fees, on campus room and board)
  • Indirect Costs: Those out of pocket expenses incurred while attending college which are not paid directly to the college (books and supplies, off campus room and board, transportation, personal/miscellaneous expenses)
