Cost of Attendance

The Cost of Attendance (COA) consists of estimated costs for students who attend ASU-Beebe. It helps the Financial Aid Office to determine financial need, the type of financial aid, and the amount of aid an eligible student may receive.

Cost of Attendance consists of direct and indirect costs:

  1. Direct Costs: Tuition, fees, room and board if living on campus. These cost are billed to your student account. If there are remaining funds after your direct cost are paid, books may be charged to your student account provided there are funds available to charge against.
  2. Indirect Costs: Books and supplies, transportation, room and board if living off campus, and personal expenses. These are expenses that you pay out-of-pocket.

The COA is based on full-time enrollment for nine months, 24 credits (12 credits for fall and 12 credits for spring).

Components of the Estimated Cost of Attendance


The tuition expense shown on the COA is an estimated cost based on full-time enrollment of 24 credits for the fall and spring semesters combined; 12 fall and 12 spring. Please remember that you will be billed for the number of credits for which you are enrolled.

Tuition is based on the number of credits you are enrolled and if you are a state resident, out-of-state, or a Cleburne Count resident. The tuition is billed to your ASU-Beebe student account. This is a direct cost because it is shown on your student account.


Basic fees are included in the COA. Actual fees may differ depending on whether you are enrolled in an on-line class, a lab class, or a specific fee required for your academic program.

Like tuition, this is a direct cost.

Room & Board

Room and board may be either a direct or indirect cost depending on whether or not you live on campus.

Expenses shown in the COA are determined by ASU-Beebe. The expenses are based on double room occupancy and meal plan. This is a direct cost.

If you are living off campus with your parents or in your own home, your estimated costs are based on information provided by the College Board. This is an indirect cost.

Books & Supplies

The estimated amount for books and supplies is provided by the ASU-Beebe Bookstore. Your actual expenses may vary depending on your academic program requirements.

Books and supplies are an indirect cost.

Transportation & Personal Expenses

These expenses are indirect costs that you will not be billed but are paid by you as they occur. Indirect cost vary based on a student’s needs, but are based on what is considered reasonable and modest in cost (gas, clothing, toiletries, etc).

Note that actual expenses will vary depending upon your lifestyle, marital status, and living situation.

These estimated expenses are based on costs provided by the College Board.

Direct Loan Fee

This fee is only used when a student or parent borrows a Federal Direct Student Loan or PLUS Loan. This is an indirect cost.
