Cost of Attendance for Academic Doctorate
The total Cost of Attendance (COA) is an allowance based on expenses that students may incur while enrolled in school. The COA includes tuition, fees and expenses for housing, food, educational materials and transportation. This figure is used to determine aid eligibility. The amount of financial aid that students receive cannot exceed the cost of attendance
The COA is determined by the housing option selected on the financial aid application. Off Campus students are students who live independently (whether alone, with a roommate, domestic partner, or spouse). Commuter students are students who are living with their parents/guardians.
Please note that certain expenses listed, such as room and board, personal expenses, and transportation, vary depending on living arrangements and lifestyle. Typical Housing Cost information is also compiled by UC Office of the President and can give you an idea of housing costs in areas close to UCLA.
