What is standard cost of attendance?

Federal regulations require that the Financial Aid office construct an estimated cost of attendance budget for students receiving federal financial aid. These estimates are conservative in nature and are not intended to meet actual individual expenses of all students. Using information from the FAFSA, financial need is determined by subtracting the family's expected contribution from the budget. The expected family contribution is determined using a federal formula established by Congress.
