Cost of Attendance

Cost of Attendance (COA) includes tuition, fees, and modest living expenses associated with attending APU.

Estimated Cost of Attendance for Graduate Students

Here is an example of COA for a graduate student, living off campus and attending traditional 16-week fall and spring terms at APU:

8 Months Cost of Attendance

Books and Supplies $1,704
Board (Food) $3,608
Loan Fees $92
Personal Expenses $2,664
Room $11,936
Transportation $1,112
Tuition varies
Total Budget Excluding Tuition and Fees $21,116

If your program unit cost is $700 per unit and you are taking 20 units, your tuition will be $14,000 ($700 x 20).

Example of fall and spring: $21,116 (living expenses) + $14,000 (tuition) = $35,116 total COA.[1]
