The Cost of Attendance (COA) is the Office of Student Financial Aid Services' estimate of your educational expenses for the school year.
This figure is used to determine the maximum amount of financial aid you may be offered and is not the amount you will be billed for the academic year.
The total Cost of Attendance (COA) includes estimated direct educational costs and an estimate of indirect costs based on full-time attendance at Storrs.
The housing and meal plan amounts are an average of the cost of the various options for the year. These figures do not represent your actual fee bill but
are estimates and subject to change. Indirect costs such as books and supplies, transportation, and miscellaneous costs do not appear on the fee bill.
Please note that students are billed separately for each semester; therefore, the annual amounts described below may be divided by two to determine
estimates for a single semester. In order to reduce these costs, we encourage you to choose the lowest price options for housing rates and meal plans.
For additional information regarding COA, please visit https://financialaid.uconn.edu/cost/. For information regarding actual current year costs, please visit the Bursar's website.
