Cost of Attendance

What you need to know about your Financial Aid Budget

Your financial aid budget is a total of direct and indirect costs at Vermont State University, based on residency and housing. It is not tailored to individual living expenses or choices. You can receive financial aid (loans, grants, scholarships, work study, etc.) up to the full cost of attendance.

What does Cost of Attendance really mean? 

Cost of attendance (COA) is the total cost for you to attend Vermont State University each year, before financial aid. COA includes the following billable costs:  general tuition, program tuition and fees, housing and a food plan. It also includes the following indirect costs: books and supplies, personal and travel. The Books & Supplies and Personal/Miscellaneous amounts in the table are estimates used in determining financial aid eligibility. Your actual expenses will vary.
