Cost of Attendance

The Cost of Attendance (COA) is determined by the Office of Student Financial Services and is based on the average costs a student will incur during the academic year. Included in the COA are average tuition and fee costs, a room and board allowance, books and supplies, transportation, and personal/miscellaneous expenses. The actual cost will vary depending on whether a student chooses to live at home with their parents, or independently. Transportation costs will also vary depending on proximity to the campus and mode of transportation.

  • Tuition and Fees: The average cost of tuition and fees for a typical undergraduate student based on full-time or part-time enrollment. Full-time undergraduate = 30 hours per academic year; Part-time undergraduate = 18 hours per academic year.
  • Room and Board: A reasonable estimate of what it would cost to live in San Antonio while attending school. Actual costs may vary by individual choices related to location and circumstances.
  • Books and Supplies: The average cost of books and supplies for a typical student for an entire academic year.
  • Transportation: Average transportation expenses are based on an average 30 mile round trip to campus.
  • Personal and Miscellaneous: Average expenses are calculated based on potential expenses that students might incur such as: personal computers, personal items or emergency expenses.
