Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance (COA) is an estimate of what it costs the typical student to attend Bellevue University and is used to determine how much Financial Aid a student is eligible for. Your cost of attendance (COA) doesn’t just cover your college tuition; it considers your basic living expenses, too. It is important for you to budget and make wise decisions regarding how to utilize the financial aid funds you receive. Students are not allowed to receive aid that exceeds their term cost of attendance, front load their aid, or receive uneven loan disbursements. Your initial cost of attendance is based on full time enrollment. Dropping to less than full time will reduce your financial aid loans and grants either in the current or future terms.
