Cost of Attendance (COA)

The Cost of Attendance (COA) is not the actual bill from CCBC; it is the estimated total amount it may cost you to go to college for that academic year.

Each institution creates the categories used in the COA. CCBC’s COA includes the following categories:
  • Tuition and fees
  • Room and board
  • Loan fees
  • Miscellaneous expenses
  • Personal expenses
  • Transportation
CCBC uses special programming to create customized budgets for each student. Simply log into your SIMON account for exact amounts. To help new students plan their finances, we have provided an estimated COA for independent and dependent students. These estimates are based on costs for fall and spring semesters and full-time enrollment (minimum 12 credit/billable hours). Estimates would be lower if you attend less than full-time (12 credits/billable hours) and/or fewer than nine months (fall and spring semesters combined).
