Cost of Attendance

The Cost of Attendance (COA) is an average estimate of what it costs a typical undergraduate student to attend Howard University for one academic year. Your cost of attendance estimate doesn't only include tuition. It also takes basic living and commuting expenses into account.

The actual amount you pay, and the amount it costs you for one academic year, will always differ from the cost of attendance.
