The Cost of Attendance (COA) is by no means an amount that Westminster expects you to pay, but rather is a broad estimate of one year of expenses based on your program. It is set by Westminster each year that includes all aspects of your seminary education including tuition, books, housing, and other school related expenses.

Why is it on my account?

The Financial Aid Office uses this tool as a way to look at a student's financial situation when students apply for scholarships and loans. Remember, it is merely an estimate, and is not the amount we expect you to pay for the semester. Read this article for more information on paying for tuition.
