Cost of Attendance

Tuition, Fees, and Estimated Out-of-Pocket Expenses

 

Our office will determine a student's cost of attendance (COA) based on a number of components.

The cost of attendance for undergraduate students that is used by our staff includes a student's billed tuition, fees, room and board (found below, listed by major), as well as allowances for books/supplies ($1500), uniform upkeep ($500) (2nd - 4th year), transportation ($750), and personal expenses ($1000).  Students are highly encouraged to use our interactive budget worksheet to determine if they can expect a refund to assist with these out of pocket expenses.  Once you have completed the interactive budget worksheet, if there is a negative number at the end, this indicates that the student will have excess aid after the bill is paid for these out of pocket expenses. Keep in mind that this excess may come from borrowing federal loans and may not be in the student's best interest.

In addition to the expenses that are outlined here, students may also experience additional expenses during their education at MMA.  Not included in the seabag is a student's Tropical White Dress Uniform (estimated cost $400) usually purchased prior to the Ring Dance during Junior year.  If not purchased Junior year, it must be purchased Senior year.  Some students may be required to purchase some, if not all, of the Tropical White Dress Uniform earlier than Junior Year (based on their involvement in campus activities/groups).  Other uniform related expenses include the cost of pins (max $50) and ribbons (typically $1 a piece).  A student may also periodically need to replace pieces of their uniform at some point during their education.  The Bookstore can provide you with itemized costs for these expenses.

Like on any college campus, students should expect other miscellaneous expenses.  Parking permits for those allowed to have a car on campus are approximated $200. There may be other expenses related to extra-curricular activities in which a student might choose to participate, such as club membership dues. Students should anticipate the need for these types of expenses.

Students may request a one time increase to their cost of attendance for the purchase of a laptop.  Our policy is to allow a one time $1200 increase based on these requests.

The COA is used to determine the maximum amount of financial aid (including outside scholarships and loans) that a student can receive.

Costs and tuition determination can change at any time per order of the MMA Board of Trustees.

Budgeting Worksheets


These budget worksheets can be used to help you determine your bottom line for the academic year, after all financial aid has been taken into consideration. To best use this interactive worksheet, you should have the student's financial aid award information on hand.  Please keep in mind that this worksheet has been developed to assist in estimating your final out of pocket costs.  We will be providing you with the actual final costs by way of the student's e-bill.

Once on the actual worksheet, click on the 'download' arrow in the upper right hand corner and open the document with Adobe Reader for best results.

The Following 2020-2021 costs apply to students entering, or being re-admitted to MMA beginning in the fall of 2018 and beyond.

Please note:  charges typically increase anywhere from 3 - 5% each year.  These charges are specifically for the 2020-2021 academic year.
