Cost of Attendance
Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance (COA) is an estimate of what it costs the typical student to attend Texas A&M International University. Your COA includes tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, transportation, and personal expenses. Standard COA is prepared each year to determine a student's financial need. These are constructed to estimate expenses for periods of enrollment for the Fall and Spring semesters as well as the Summer terms.

When comparing financial aid packages from other schools, make sure you are comparing the total cost of attending that school, not just the total financial aid awarded. It is important for you to budget and make wise decisions regarding how to utilize the financial aid funds you receive. Students are not allowed to receive aid that exceeds their COA.

 

Note: Adjustments to Cost of Attendance will be considered for one time purchase of a computer, child care, or study abroad.
