Cost of Attendance

The Johns Hopkins School of Education estimates your Cost of Attendance (COA) each academic year by projecting your educational costs based on federal regulatory guidelines. The Office of Financial Aid uses the COA to determine your financial need and aid eligibility.
The COA consists of direct costs, such as tuition and fees, and indirect costs, including books, transportation, computer, loan fees, personal expenses, and housing and food.
The indirect portion of your COA is a modest estimate of a student’s cost of living (housing, board, books, etc.) in alignment with federal guidelines. It is not meant to serve as an exact assessment of your actual expenses. Each student’s COA will vary depending on the program of study, dependency, and enrolled credit load.
After the Department of Education processes your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the information is sent to the University’s Office of Student Enrollment & Account Management (SEAM) – Financial Aid. The Office of Student Enrollment and Account Management (SEAM) works cross-functionally to provide support with financial aid, student accounts, and registration. Please request support through SEAM’s online form– Financial Aid to review your specific COA budget.
