Financial Aid

Estimated Cost of Attendance

Cost of attendance (COA) is an average figure used to determine financial aid eligibility. It includes estimates of standard expenses such as tuition, fees, books, supplies, room, board, and personal expenses, such as unreimbursed medical/dental expenses, clothing, and transportation. Cost of Attendance minus the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) from your FAFSA equals your financial need for need-based financial aid programs.

The COA is not a bill and is provided for planning purposes only. Actual student bills will differ from the estimated COA figures provided by the College, which include both direct (i.e. billable) costs and indirect costs for two semesters. Tuition, fees, room (for on-campus residents), and books are the direct costs for which students are billed by Faulkner State Community College. Other costs, including off-campus living expenses, are not billed by the College and will vary for each student.

Estimated cost of attendance budgets for 2015-2016 (two semesters of enrollment) are provided by the College upon request. Please note that COA figures are estimates and are subject to change.
