Cost of Attendance
As you plan for college, it is important to consider that there are costs you'll incur that will not be billed to you directly. We call these "indirect costs" and we are pleased to provide you an estimate of what they might be. We do this through an annual Cost of Attendance.
The Cost of Attendance is the cornerstone of establishing your financial need, and it sets a limit on the total aid that you may receive. It consists of both Direct Costs, (those paid directly to McDaniel), and Indirect Costs, those which are incidental to your attendance at McDaniel.
We use average expenses, rather than actual expenses, to determine approximately what it will cost you to attend school and live for a given enrollment period.
It is important to know that a student can never receive more than the Cost of Attendance in financial aid. This includes any combination of institutional, federal, state, or private funding sources, including merit (scholarships, including outside scholarships) and need-based aid (grants and loans) as well as tuition benefits, ROTC awards, and Resident Advisor contracts.
