Cost of Attendance

When considering the costs of any educational program you will want to take many factors into account, not just tuition. Will you be working while attending your program, either full or part time? Will your income and other available funds be enough to cover all household expenses?

The Cost of Attendance (COA) below can help you with these concerns and it is used to determine eligibility for certain types of financial aid. It is an estimated breakdown of all costs associated with your program using national averages for living expenses based on students who attend 45 credits during a school year (3 quarters).

NOTE: You will not be charged the full Cost of Attendance by ISSA. We will only charge for tuition for the credits you enroll in on a quarterly basis.

ISSA has no physical residence for students and does not offer room or board.
