The Cost of Attendance (COA) listed in Populi is by no means an amount that Westminster expects you to pay, but rather is a broad estimate of one year of expenses based on your program. It is an estimation set by Westminster each year that includes all aspects of your seminary education including tuition, books, housing, and other school related expenses.
Why is it on my Populi account?
The Financial Aid Office uses this tool as a way to look at a student's financial situation when students apply for loans. Remember, it is merely an estimate, and is not the amount we expect you to pay for the semester.
