Each college or university determines an estimate of how much it will cost,
for you to attend the school, including tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, personal expenses, transportation, and miscellaneous expenses. This is your Cost of Attendance, and varies from one institution to another. See How Financial Aid Works to understand how the Cost of Attendance impacts your financial need.
