Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance is the cornerstone of establishing a student’s financial need as it sets a limit on the total aid that a student may receive.  The cost of attendance is an estimate of the student’s total educational expenses for the academic year.  Federal law specifies the types of costs that must be included in the cost of attendance.

CFCC has determined the following cost estimate for a full-time (12 or more credits each semester) student for the 2016-17 academic year.  Course loads reflecting less than full-time are adjusted accordingly.

CFCC study abroad opportunities are very limited; but if you qualify, it is possible to use financial aid to assist with study abroad program expenses.  Contact the Financial Aid Office for information.
