Cost of Attendance (COA)

Cost of Attendance represents how much you might spend on your college education for an academic year, including estimated costs for tuition, fees, housing, food, and other educational and living expenses. Two types of costs make-up your total COA: Direct and Indirect. Direct costs are paid directly to Anderson University and are billed on a semester-by-semester basis. Direct costs include tuition and fees if living off campus and tuition, fees, room, and board if living on campus. Indirect costs are not included on your bill from Anderson University. Indirect costs include off-campus room and board, books, supplies, transportation, and personal expenses. Your actual expenses may vary depending on your living arrangements, priorities, and other personal obligations.

The figures provided in a Cost of Attendance are used solely for the purposes of determining financial aid eligibility. Cost of Attendance is NOT a reflection of your bill. Billing information is provided by Anderson Central. See Tuition and Fees for billable costs to attend AU.
