The cost of attendance (COA) is the average cost of attending Wheelock College for a full-time graduate student, for one academic year. It includes direct and indirect costs.

  • Direct costs are charges billed to you directly by the college. These include tuition and annual fees, plus room and board if you live on campus.
  • Indirect costs are estimates for out of pocket expenditures such as books, supplies, travel, and personal expenses. These costs—which are not included in your bill from the college—are estimates. The actual amount you spend on these items may be more or less depending on your method of purchasing books, living arrangements, and personal spending habits and choices.
