Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance budget (COA) is an estimate of what it might cost a typical student to attend BGSU, full-time, for both Fall and Spring semesters. It includes estimates for instructional and general fees, room and meals, and allowances for books, supplies, transportation and personal expenses.

These estimates do not reflect the actual amount of money you might owe the University. Each student will receive E-billing statements from the Office of the Bursar that shows their actual University charges. For more information, please refer to the Bursar's Webpage.

COA figures are estimates based on average student expenses. Students may find that their own costs vary depending on their living arrangements and personal spending choices. Keep in mind that some of these expenses do not come all at once, as some of these costs, such as personal, transportation, or in some cases, housing and food, may be spread over the enrollment period. It is important to calculate what your own costs will be so you can budget your finances and manage your money. Students interested in learning more about budgeting and making informed financial decisions should work with the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships.

All amounts listed below are subject to change. Final tuition and fees are approved annually at the June Board of Trustees meeting.
