Cost of Attendance


The cost of attendance (COA) is an estimate of how much it costs a student to attend WCC for nine months of the school year (Fall and Spring) based on specific living arrangements.  Provided below is a COA breakdown for a full-time (12 credits per semester) student who will live at home with their parent(s) during the school year and also for a student who will live on their own and not with parent(s).  The COA is further defined for students with resident and nonresident tuition rates.
