Cost of Attendance

co-grad.jpgFinancial Aid Cost of Attendance is not the bill you will receive at Catawba College. Cost of Attendance is the total of Direct Charges and Indirect Charges you might pay to go to Catawba College for the entire academic year. Cost of Attendance includes things like tuition, room and board (housing and food allowance for off-campus students), and allowances for books, supplies, transportation, personal, and miscellaneous expenses. Direct Charges like tuition, room, and board are paid directly to the Business Office, where Indirect Charges (books, gas, food, shampoo, etc.) are not.
