Cost of Attendance: Graduate Students

The tables below detail the Cost of Attendance figures for a Mines graduate student for the current school year and most recent academic year. The figures in the chart will be revised for the next school year after the Board of Trustees meeting in June when the new rates for tuition and fees are approved.

Cost of Attendance (COA) is determined by your living situation (on/off campus or living at home as indicated on the FAFSA) and enrollment status (full-time, part-time). Components of COA are tuition, fees, books, supplies, room/board, personal, and transportation expenses. These components are determined by federal and state rules.
