Cost of Attendance

The University prepares cost of attendance (COA) figures in order to calculate financial aid eligibility for students. If you do not receive financial aid, you may use the following figures to estimate enrollment costs. Actual costs may differ depending on your academic program, coursework, and personal spending choices.

The total amount of financial aid offered to a student, including all scholarships and grants, cannot exceed the cost of attendance at the University of Minnesota Crookston for that aid year. Financial aid offers (e.g., loans, work study, scholarships, or grants) may be reduced for students whose total aid exceeds the cost of attendance.

Verification

Verification

The US Department of Education and/or UMC may select students for a process called Verification. This process verifies the information you reported on your FAFSA is correct. The selection of applications is accomplished primarily through a series of edit checks that are designed to identify applications with the greatest likelihood for error. Most selection is at random. If you’re selected, you may be asked to verify: income, federal income tax paid, household size, independent student status, number of family members enrolled in post-secondary education, and untaxed income and benefits received. You may be required to provide copies of other applicable information and/or forms as requested by the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.
