DU Cost of Attendance covers a variety of college expenses

The DU Cost of Attendance covers a broad range of college costs. However, the COA budget is only meant to provide you with an estimate so you know how to budget for college. 
The COA Budget includes these college expenses:

  • Davenport University tuition
  • College registration fees
  • Living expenses for college
  • Transportation
  • Personal school-related expenses

The COA is based on the average college expenses of all students. Depending on your personal spending habits and how many courses you take, your college costs may be more or less. Keep that in mind as you’re budgeting for college. 

Please note: The DU Cost of Attendance budget is based on a student being enrolled in two consecutive semesters. We will adjust the estimates if you enroll in only one semester or in three semesters. The Federal Government allows institutions to include a variety of college expenses, such as Davenport University tuition, but not all. Please see charts below that estimate total tuition as well as books and living expenses for college.
