Cost of Attendance

The Cost of Attendance (COA) is an estimate of what it costs the typical student to attend HFC. The COA takes into account expenses such as tuition, fees, books, transportation, and living expenses. HFC uses many different Cost of Education (COE) budgets to represent the estimated education-related expenses students incur. Some of the variables are whether a student is considered an in-district student or an out-of-district student, whether or not the student lives with a parent(s) or on their own, as well as how many semesters the student attends.

Please note that these are general estimations and may not include additional costs specific to a program of study (uniforms, equipment, tools, medical instruments, et al).

If you have specific questions regarding the COA, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at 313-845-9600.
