Budgets & Cost of Attendance

Cost of Attendance

Federal regulations limit the amount of financial aid that students can receive to their Cost of Attendance (COA). The COA is an estimate of the total expenses required for one year in an educational program. The COA includes tuition/fees, books & supplies, and allowances for living expenses. The COA is determined by UF’s Office for Student Financial Affairs⤷.

Students cannot receive aid, including federal loans, that is more than the COA. On the other hand, students are not required to borrow the full COA. Conservative borrowing is strongly encouraged!

Students who are married and/or have children should understand that federal financial aid is designed to help pay for the costs for the student to attend school – not to support other family members. The sole exception to this is that a student who has dependent children may be eligible receive additional financial aid for daycare costs. Requests for daycare cost allowances must be sent via email to FinancialAid@dental.ufl.edu.

Please visit the Office for Student Financial Affairs website⤷ for more information about how the TCA is calculated.
