Cost of Attendance Cost of Attendance

The term Cost of Attendance (COA) is used to describe the anticipated costs of studying your course at UEA for one Academic Year. US Federal Regulations state the typical costs we are allowed to consider when setting the Cost of Attendance. Amongst these are:

  • Tuition Fee
  • An allowance for room rent (i.e. UEA Campus Accommodation Fees or average rent charged for off-campus accommodation) and board (food, toiletries, laundry etc)
  • An allowance for books, supplies, transportation and miscellaneous personal expenses
  • An allowance for costs associated with dependent care (if applicable)
  • An allowance for expenses related to a disability (if applicable)
  • An allowance for the fees required to receive a Federal Loan - i.e. origination fee
  • Visa application fee and Immigration Health Surcharge (if applicable)

The Cost of Attendance is re-calculated and updated each year in April when a new fiscal year begins in the UK. During the review process in April we look at the average expenses you are likely to incur for the Academic Year rather than individual actual expenses. The tables below set out the main Cost of Attendance for both new and Current (C) at UEA for the Academic Year 2017/18.

We calculate the Cost of Attendance appropriate to your course of study.  We calculate this in GB Pounds Sterling and convert this into US Dollars using our standard exchange rate set for this academic year. The cost of attendance table shows you the maximum amount we allow you to borrow however, you can choose to borrow a smaller amount depending on your personal circumstances.

It is important to note that certain forms of Estimated Financial Assistance (EFA) can reduce your Cost of Attendance and therefore the amount in loans you are eligible for. Federal Regulations specify that EFA in forms such as scholarships and bursaries must be deducted from the COA. Veteran education benefits are excluded from the definition of EFA. If you are unsure whether any financial assistance you are receiving counts as EFA, please contact us on usfinaid@uea.ac.uk.

The University publishes its Tuition Fees online. If you would like to check the Tuition Fee for a specific course you can use the link to see these published in table format - Tuition Fees 2017/18
