Cost of Attendance (COA)

The cost of attendance (COA) is divided into two categories — Direct Cost and Indirect Cost. Direct Costs are items charged directly by Emory & Henry College, such as tuition & fees, room, and board. Indirect Costs are items such as books, supplies, transportation and other miscellaneous necessities.

Tuition, room, and board charges are typically posted by March 1 of each year for the following year. Fees other than tuition, room, and board typically are not revised until April 1 of the preceding year; therefore, the miscellaneous fee amounts posted may change.
