Each year the Financial Aid Office establishes standard student budgets that use cost of attendance (COA) estimates for awarding financial aid funds. The COA budget reflects typical expense patterns of Peabody students based on research conducted by the Financial Aid Office from reliable sources. Some students will spend more than the standard amounts, while others will spend less, depending on individual circumstances.

The COA budget is not your tuition bill. Not all items listed in the budget will be paid to the school. COA figures reflect projected tuition and fee increases, as well as estimated living expenses (room and board for on or off campus housing), transportation, personal expenses and other relevant costs a student may incur. The Peabody Business Office will bill students for actual charges to be paid to the school before the start of each semester.

The actual cost for books, supplies, travel, personal and off campus living expenses varies by student.
