Financial Aid

Cost of Attendance

The Cost of Attendance (COA) is an estimated budget comprised of anticipated tuition, fees, room & board, books & supplies, a transportation allowance, and a personal expense allowance. The Washington State Board of Trustees will meet in the summer to finalize the Cost of Attendance components for next fall. Non-traditional student budgets may include a dependent care allowance upon request. You can request an increase of your COA one time for a computer purchase while at Central. Other “education-related expenses” can be added to the student budget if a properly documented request is submitted to the Financial Aid Office.
