Cost of Attendance
For purposes of calculating eligibility for financial aid, MiSPP estimates the annual Cost of Attendance (COA) based on allowable projected expenses. The COA calculation includes tuition and fees, books and supplies, estimated loan fees, and other indirect expenses such as room and board, transportation, personal and miscellaneous expenses. All students will receive the same allowances for each expense category, excluding tuition and fees. The COA establishes the total amount of financial aid that may be available.
*Students may choose to seek financial aid only for the direct costs of tuition and fees, highlighted in bold below. MiSPP reserves the right to adjust the Financial Aid Award based on actual enrollment.
Adjustments for COA may be made on a case-by-case basis to cover extraordinary expenses, such as child care or medical. Students may request a COA evaluation by providing current documentation of expenses with a written explanation of unusual circumstances to the Financial Aid Office.
