Aid is awarded based on the financial need to help students with expenses such as tuition, fees, books, housing, and transportation.
Financial need is based on the standard federal formula:
Your cost of attendance includes tuition, fees, books, supplies, room/board, transportation, and miscellaneous expenses.
Cost of Attendance
To determine your financial need, the Financial Aid office uses a cost of attendance budget.
The cost of attendance (COA) is the estimated total amount of an academic year’s expenses to attend Edgecombe Community College. COA components include tuition and fees; room and board; allowances for books/supplies, transportation; and personal expenses.
These costs are used to calculate your financial aid award, and are not the same as your billing statement. Due to federal guidelines, we are unable to award financial aid that exceeds the total Cost of Attendance.
For direct costs involved in attending ECC, visit the tuition and fees page.
