Cost of attendance

Cost of attendance (COA) includes:

  • tuition
  • fees
  • books and supplies
  • living expenses - room and board
  • transportation
  • personal care

Some of these costs will vary depending upon the anticipated enrollment status and the planned living arrangements - with parents or off campus.

The FAO will use the housing status the student indicated on the FAFSA – living with parents or off campus.  In instances when the student failed to answer that question on the FAFSA the FAO will assume a “with parent” housing status and will process the application accordingly.

The college attempts to assist students with direct educational costs, which are identified as tuition, fees and book expenses. However, some students may have additional expenses that are associated with attending HCC.  

Only in extenuating circumstances will the FAO increase the student’s cost of attendance to accommodate additional expenses.  Some allowable adjustments are day care expenses and book allowances due to higher than average costs for books and supplies.  This will be considered on a case-by-case basis and will require appropriate documentation to justify an exception.
