Cost of Attendance

*Cost of attendance (COA) is an estimated budget of college expenses for an academic semester or year. Per federal regulations, the COA serves as the maximum amount of financial assistance you may receive for an academic semester or year. UMBC will be required to reduce any funding if a student exceeds their COA in a given academic year.
