Cost of Attendance

Your Cost of Attendance (COA) is an estimate of the costs you will incur as a student at Loyola Marymount University for the academic year. It includes tuition and mandatory fees and estimated amounts for books and supplies, housing and food, personal expenses, and transportation. Estimates for many indirect expenses are derived from the California Student Aid Commission Student Expense and Budget reports. Tuition and mandatory fee expenses are fixed, and on-campus housing expenses are based on a weighted average of all on-campus housing costs. Students many not receive financial aid awards exceeding their total COA, and the COA in combination with your Expected Family Contribution helps determine your eligibility for federal, state, and institutional need-based aid. 

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