Cost of Attendance Adjustments

Cost of attendance adjustments increase the total amount of financial aid you are eligible to receive.  They do not increase your eligibility within individual aid programs.  Most often COA adjustments result in an increase in student or parent loan.

The following are the areas considered by the Financial Aid Office at WCU for cost of attendance adjustments:

• Computer allowance
• Child care expenses
• Car repairs for commuter student

To request a cost of attendance budget increase, please submit the appropriate form and all supporting documentation to the Financial Aid Office.
