Cost of Attendance

Your cost of attendance (COA) is an estimation of the expenses you will incur as a student while attending Loyola Marymount University. It is comprised of tuition and fees, estimated books and supplies, estimated room and board, estimated personal expenses, and estimated transportation. Some of the figures used in the cost of attendance are averages derived from the California Student Aid Commission Student Expense and Budgets report. Some figures are fixed, such as tuition and fees and on-campus room and board. The cost of attendance is used to determine the maximum amount of Financial Aid you can be awarded in an academic year.

The estimated student expenses will vary from student to student depending on his/her living arrangements, unit enrollment, and program of study.
