The Cost of Attendance (COA) is a key part of the formula that determines financial need.
Excluding the cost of tuition and on-campus housing, the COA is set by the Washington Financial Aid Association (WFAA) each year. The college is required to use the figures provided by WFAA. The cost of tuition is set by the state legislature. The table below reflects the established COA for the 9-month academic year (October-June). The COA includes only a portion of living expenses related to the cost of attending college. It is not meant to reflect every expense a student or a student’s family may incur. The figures below reflect the COA for Bellevue College for 2020-2021.
