The Office of Student Financial Services establishes standard student budgets each year as a basis for awarding financial aid funds. The cost of attendance for a student is an estimate of that student’s educational expenses for the period of enrollment. The cost of attendance for the financial aid programs is a student’s cost for the period in which the aid is intended.

The cost of attendance is determined by law (Higher Education Act, Sec. 472) and is not subject to limited regulation by the Department of Education. The law specifies the types of costs that are included in the cost of attendance, but SUNY Cobleskill determines the appropriate amount to include.
