COST OF ATTENDANCE

Financial aid eligibility is always based on the cost of attendance (COA) for one year at a particular institution. The cost of attendance at the Conservatory includes the standard charges for tuition, fees, thesis tuition (second year Fellows only) and a reasonable estimate for living expenses, transportation and miscellaneous costs associated with attendance. Your cost of attendance will be adjusted each year as your standard charges change and as we adjust the estimates for the other costs associated with attendance.
