The term Cost of Attendance (COA) refers to an estimate of total expenses that students may incur while attending UAH for the academic year which will include direct institutional costs as well as indirect costs. We use the COA when determining your eligibility for need-based financial aid; however, you may wish to refer to these estimated expenses to assist in your budget planning process. For another estimate of your cost of attendance, refer to the net price calculator. Please note also that you may pay a different amount dependent upon your specific course of study and that all costs are subject to change.
