Tuition and Financial Aid

Will there be any more financial assistance offered students since there is now a rise in housing costs?

The increase in the average weighted housing cost has already been adjusted on student accounts for 2020-2021. An option for additional assistance is the Student Emergency Fund studentaffairs.cofc.edu/student-emergency-fund-application.php. Additional Financial Aid Cost of Attendance information may be found at finaid.cofc.edu/financial-aid-information/cost-of-attendance/.

Where can I get more information on financial assistance for funding my laptop purchase?

If you are looking for additional financial assistance to help pay for your laptop, you must first have a completed FAFSA on file and your financial aid file requirements must be complete. Visit finaid.cofc.edu/financial-aid-information/general/applying-fin-aid/index.php for more details. Afterwards you may download and complete the COAAR request form finaid.cofc.edu/pdf-forms/COAAR.pdf Email the completed form to financialaid@cofc.edu.

If a student cannot afford to purchase a laptop and/or does not qualify for additional financial aid, the student can visit the technology loan web page to apply for a laptop it.cofc.edu/laptops/techloan. After applying for the laptop, IT will verify financial need and, if the student qualifies, IT will loan the student a used laptop. The form to apply is located on the technology loan web page it.cofc.edu/laptops/techloan.
