Western Governor's University CoA

<p>I can't find this number to save my life. All I have found is what their tuition is but nothing on their cost of attendance. Was just curious to see how my financial aid package might shape up.</p>

<p>If anybody might know I would appreciate some help on this.</p>

<p>Thank You.</p>

<p>Isn’t this an online university? If so, then COA would just be tuition and books, right?</p>

<p>Yeah, it is an online University, what gets me curious is because it states:</p>

<p>"You Can Use Financial Aid for:</p>

<p>Federal financial aid will cover most if not all of your direct education expenses, including:</p>

<pre><code>Tuition and Fees
Technology - New Computer
Other educational expenses

<p>Disbursement of Financial Aid Funds</p>

<p>Financial aid funds are used for educational costs only. Educational costs include WGU tuition and fees, technology, books and supplies, travel for assessments, and living expenses. Funds are applied to the students account in the following order as eligible: Scholarships, Pell Grant, other Federal Grants, Subsidized Loan, and Unsubsidized Loan. "</p>

<p>Tuition is roughly 3k per semester, so I was trying to find out what their COA might be beyond that. Haven’t had any luck finding anything yet.</p>

<p>*Federal financial aid will cover most if not all of your direct education expenses, including:</p>


<p>That statement is saying that federal aid…which are small grants and loans, may be enough to cover most/all of your DIRECT costs…that is tuition. So, since tuition is about 6k per year…and you can borrow $5500 per year…then that would cover nearly all of your “direct costs”. </p>

<p>If your EFC is very low, then you’d qualify for a Pell Grant. </p>

<p>You can call the school and ask what their COA is…but it’s likely that it’s about $7-8k per year…unless they include some kind of “estimate” for your home living expenses. </p>

<p>One website said:</p>

<p>Total Cost
On-Campus Attendance $6,460 </p>

<p>Keep in mind that these schools do not meet need, and they don’t have much aid to give. </p>

<p>Do you know what your EFC is? </p>

<p>how much aid do you need? Keep in mind that you should borrow as little as possible.</p>

<p>Yeah, I’m think I’m going to give them a call today.</p>

<p>My EFC is 0</p>

<p>Then you’ll get a Pell Grant for $5550. That should cover most of your tuition. If there are some more expenses, you can either pay for them with a part-time job or earnings from a summer job, or take out a student loan.</p>
