Financial Aid and Scholarships

Estimated Cost of Attendance (COA)

Your total financial aid budget, called the Cost of Attendance (COA) is the ESTIMATED cost of completing a full year as a Montana State University Billings (MSUB) student and includes weighted averages for tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, and other expenses including personal expenses and transportation.

IMPORTANT: The COA is a tool used by the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships to determine your eligibility for financial aid and does not reflect the actual bill that you will pay to MSUB. Your actual tuition costs will be determined by the MSUB Business Services Office and any room and board costs for students living on campus will be determined by the Housing & Residence Life Office.
