Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance (COA) estimates the annual amount needed to cover educational expenses while attending
Concordia University Chicago. Several elements besides tuition and technology fees determine the COA. It is
important that you consider the cost of books and supplies, transportation and personal living expenses.

Final bills come from Student Business Services, which will contain actual tuition costs and mandatory fees.

Financial aid award packages cannot exceed the total COA for an academic year. An increase in the COA may be
considered if an additional one-time educational expense occurs (ex. laptop purchase).
