Cost of Attendance (COA) Budget

A student’s financial aid is awarded based on the above standard estimated Cost of Attendance (COA) budget. Students may borrow up to the Cost of Attendance budget; less other aid (such as scholarships and department aid) to cover other budget expenses. All funds, scholarships, loans or other funding received, must fit within the COA budget.

Any awarding after receiving full COA budget, may affect other aid. Please reach out to Ross Financial Aid to have financial aid reviewed to know if something will be affected.

Students enrolled less than 9 credits will be subject to a budget adjustment. Financial Aid will identify the students that are less than 9 credits after the University’s first initial Add/Drop date of the semester, and adjust student’s Cost of Attendance to match that of actual tuition charge on account, which may result in a reduction of awarded aid. To learn more about the University’s Add/Drop date, visit the Registrar’s website and click on “Calendars”> checkbox “Registration Deadlines”> select an “Academic Term” and hit “Submit” to view the University’s registration deadlines.

Sometimes the standard estimated Cost of Attendance does not realistically meet a student’s actual expenses. Student’s that are in need of additional aid beyond the standard estimated Cost of Attendance budget, may want to seek a Budget Re-Evaluation. The Budget Re-Evaluation option opens in early October.

Multidisciplinary Action Projects (MAP)

All first year full time MBA students (MBA1) will participate in MAP during their second semester.

There is no cost to the student for participating in MAP. On behalf of the student, the participating MAP company sponsors will cover all MAP related expenses. To account for the cost of MAP covered by the company sponsors, and as per federal regulations, this support must be reported against the student’s account. 

What this means to you and your financial aid:

For all full time MBA1 students participating in MAP in Winter 2024, an estimated “MAP Ross Placeholder” of $2,578 will show on the financial aid award. This is to record the cost covered by the MAP company sponsors. All MBA1 Cost of Attendance budgets are also increased by $2,578 to accommodate this placeholder, and to not impact aid and loan borrowing eligibility. Therefore, the budget increase and the corresponding placeholder cancel each other out and create an equal balance of expenses and payments against the student’s account. The MAP placeholder will not reduce, refund or disburse against the student’s account / tuition cost.
