Financial Aid


Cost of Attendance

Cost of Attendance (COA) is defined as expenses that are determined by the institution (tuition, fees, room and board). The estimated budget provided details of expenses that are flexible based on student choices (room/board, transportation costs, and personal expenses). The estimated budget provided does not represent the amount you would owe to the College. Individual expenses will vary based on student-specific majors, living arrangements, and personal spending decisions. A student’s financial aid package is based on the cost of attendance and can be increased if eligible and additional aid is available.

Cost of Attendance Definitions

Tuition – The amount per credit hour that has been approved by the Wiley College Board of Trustees. The amount provided is the average cost based on 12 hours per semester enrollment. Tuition varies per educational program.

General Fees – The amount of fees that a student will be required to pay. The fees are standard for all students except those enrolled in the Adult Education Program.

Technology Fees – The amount of fees that a student will be required to pay for use and maintenance of educational technology initiatives.

Room and Board – A reasonable estimate of what it would cost to live in Marshall and the surrounding area while attending school. Actual costs may vary by individual choices related to location and circumstances. If a student resides on campus, the cost would cover housing and meal plan fees.

Transportation – Represents travel to and from home residence and transportation costs to and from class and work.

Personal – Personal items not included in room and board and estimated federal loan fees.
