According to FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), cost of attendance is defined as the total estimated cost for one academic year before financial aid is applied, which includes books, supplies, transportation and housing and food allowances in addition to the tuition and student fees. Estimated indirect expenses are included to aid in calculating the cost of attending MUOT. These may vary based on your personal choices.
