Cost of Attendance Components

In order to determine a student’s financial aid eligibility, an estimated Cost of Attendance (COA) for financial aid applicants must be established. A combination of the following applicable components is used to determine the COA for Lycoming students for the 2024-2025 academic year. The applicable components are determined by the student’s enrollment status (full-time /part-time), year in college, housing status (on campus / off campus), and dependency status.
