Estimated Cost


Myths.png

For financial aid purposes, the Cost of Attendance (COA) is an estimate of the total cost to attend ETBU, and includes both direct and indirect costs.  Direct Costs are those billed by ETBU and include tuition, fees, and on-campus room and board for students who live on campus.  Indirect Costs are books, supplies, transportation, personal expenses, and room and board for students who live off-campus or with a parent.  Below is detailed information regarding the 2014-2015 COA.

 Tuition & Fees - The average cost of tuition and fees for a typical student based on enrolling in 30 hours for the academic year.

Books & Supplies - A reasonable estimate of books and supplies for a typical student for the academic year.

Room & Board - A reasonable estimate of what it would cost to live on campus or off-campus in Marshall while attending school for the academic year

Transportation - A reasonable estimate of what it would cost a student in transportation expenses while attending school for the academic year. This is an indirect cost - an expense not owed to ETBU.

Personal & Miscellaneous - A reasonable estimate of what it would cost a student in personal and miscellaneous expenses while attending school for the academic year.  This is an indirect cost - an expense not owed to ETBU.

 

The Average Cost information below is based on 15 credit hours in fall and spring, and includes indirect expenses that are not payable to ETBU (books & supplies, transportation, and personal expenses).

The above categories of budgets are used in determining the amount of financial aid a student is eligible for by subtracting the Expected Family Contribution (from the FAFSA) from the total budget. If you have not filed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you may do so at www.fafsa.gov.
