Cost of Attendance | BCTC

Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance (COA) is an average projected cost for one academic year. An academic year is defined as two 16-week terms. Your COA is determined by your residency status (non-resident or resident), housing and dependency status (dependent or independent).

What's Included?

  • Tuition and Fees
  • Books & Supplies
  • Housing
  • Personal Expenses
  • Transportation

How does COA affect your Financial Aid?

Eligibility for need-based financial aid may not exceed your COA. Demonstrated financial need is defined by your COA minus EFC (Expected Family Contribution) as determined by your FAFSA.
