Cost of Attendance: 

The compilation of a financial aid package is a very in-depth process that takes many factors into consideration.  No component, however, is more important than the cost of attendance.  It helps us determine your eligibility for aid by taking into account your enrollment status, dependency status and your living situation (i.e., in residence halls, with parents, off-campus).  The budget is not intended to be a dollar-by-dollar reflection of actual financial responsibilities.  Rather, it is an expression of the average or typical costs of maintaining an adequate standard of living for our students. 

The cost of attendance figure is composed of direct costs like those listed above (tuition, room, board and fees) which are subject to change each year.  It also includes an allotment for books, transportation expenses and miscellaneous expenses.  Here are the components that Roanoke College uses when calculating budgets each year:

Tuition (listed above)
Room/Rent (listed above)
Board/Meal Plan (listed above)
