Cost of Attendance (COA)

& College Financing Plan (CFP)


If you file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), a College Financing Plan (CFP) is made available in MyOTC. The Financial Aid Office provides Cost of Attendance (COA) information outlining the estimated annual cost of attending college, including amounts for tuition & fees, room & board, book & supplies, transportation, and personal expenses. Your COA is based upon your residency status as well as information from the FAFSA. The College Financing Plan (formerly Shopping Sheet) provides a standardized cost sheet designed to simplify financial aid information so students can more easily compare institutions and make informed decisions. See the examples below to help you estimate college costs and available financial aid.

See how OTC compares with other institutions in terms of cost, graduation rates and retention by viewing the important information at College Scorecard and College Navigator.

Please contact our office at if you have questions about your Financial Aid Package.
