Education Training Voucher

What is the “cost of attendance?”

Section 472 of the Higher Education Act provides detailed information about the allowable costs associated with attending a institution of higher education which extends beyond tuition and fees.

Universities, colleges, and other programs have tools for calculating the cost of attendance for their school.  This computation does not always include the resources of a young person needs to complete the semester such as child care and equipment.  States can use this government site www.nces.ed.gov, to see the standard tuition and fees along with room and board costs for any institution that receives Pell Grant funding.
