Cost of Attendance


The Cost of Attendance(COA) is used to establish a student's eligibility for aid and does not reflect what a student will pay to the University of Montana because it includes both direct costs (charges owed to UM) and indirect costs (estimates of what is needed for incidental expenses). A students COA is determined by their credit load each semester.
 A student's COA is adjusted to reflect their enrollment status of 12 or more credits, 9 to 11 credits, 6 to 8 credits or 1 to 5 credits.

2015-2016 COA:

The following COA's are based on estimated Tuition & Fees and Room & Board and may be subject to change. The actual rates won't be determined by the Board of Regents until June 2015.

Undergraduate COA:

The following two tables reflect the COA's for the 15-16 school year 12 or more credits attendance.
