Frequently Asked Questions

Why are personal and travel expenses included in the total cost?

The federal definition of the cost of attendance (COA) is the average price to attend a college or university for a full academic year. COA includes tuition, books and supplies, transportation, room and board, personal expenses, and more. Personal and travel expenses are estimated costs to account for when considering financial feasibility.

Why do some programs have additional fees?

Each program is different! Some require technical fees for labs and other processing fees that support the student’s progress through the coursework.

What financial aid is available?

There is Federal Financial Aid available via grants, loans, and work-study. These types of financial aid help cover school expenses including tuition, fees, room, board, books, supplies, and transportation. Most aid is need-based, and you are required to file a FAFSA in order to be eligible for any federal aid. Once you have applied for your FAFSA, and you have been accepted to Alliance University, your Award Letter will inform you what you are eligible for. Additionally, there is State Aid available for residents of New York.
