Cost of Attendance
Schools that disburse Title IV funds are required to maintain a cost of attendance for students. A cost of attendance is an estimate of average educational expenses for a period of enrollment. You may view the average in-state cost of attendance for undergraduates and graduates on our Eligibility page.
The Higher Education Amendments of 1998 included a new student eligibility provision. It provides that a student is ineligible for federal student aid if convicted, under federal or state law, of any offense involving the possession or sale of a controlled substance (generally meaning illegal drugs) while receiving Title IV Financial Assistance. The period of ineligibility begins on the date of conviction and lasts until the end of a statutorily specified period. The student may regain eligibility early by completing a drug rehabilitation program or if the conviction is overturned. Students affected by this law may avoid the loss of eligibility by completing an acceptable drug rehabilitation program.
