The Cost of Attendance (COA), or student budget, is an estimate of the cost of attending MTSA for an academic year. The components in the budget include tuition, fees, room, board, books and supplies and transportation. Award amounts may not exceed the students cost of attendance. MTSA reserves the right to adjust awards at any time because of changes in financial situation, enrollment status and/or if the student receives additional outside assistance. Students are required to notify the financial aid office of any outside assistance awarded to them by other sources.
