Cost of Attendance

Cost of Attendance (COA)

The Cost of Attendance represents the anticipated costs that a learner may incur during the enrollment period. It does not represent the actual cost of tuition and fees to attend UIWSOM. It is comprised of direct costs (tuition and fees) and indirect costs (room and board, books and supplies, transportation and other personal/miscellaneous costs). It also represents the maximum amount of funding for the aid year. Therefore, it is valuable for personal budgeting and planning.

Cost of Attendance Adjustments

Adjustments to the established COA are permitted for learners who have additional qualifying expenses during the enrollment period, such as childcare costs, laptop, and software. This adjustment increases a learner's loan eligibility. The Cost of Attendance Adjustment Form can be found at Current Forms, under the Other Forms folder.

Additional Educational Expenses

If a learner purchased a laptop, tablet, required software, or related accessories, they may submit a COA adjustment to increase funding. The maximum increase to the COA for a laptop purchase is $1,650.

Childcare Expenses

If a learner has childcare expenses, not private elementary or secondary school tuition, they may seek additional funding. The budget can be increased by the weekly rate paid for childcare during the actual period of enrollment, with a maximum increase up to $1,500 per semester for one child, $2,000 per semester for two children, $2,500 per semester for three children, or $3,000 per semester for four children or more.

Health Insurance

All learners are required to have health insurance. However, the cost of insurance is not included in the established COA. Learners that purchased UIW-sponsored insurance can request an increase to their COA after the insurance waiver deadline. 

Loan Fees

Federal loans are subject to a loan origination fee prior to disbursement. To recoup that funding, learners can request an increase to their Cost of Attendance in the amount of their loan fees.

COMLEX Preparation Services

If a learner participated in a UIWSOM-required COMLEX preparation service, they may seek additional funding. The preparation service (boot camp, tutoring, etc.) must be required by UIWSOM, not recommended. Receipts and verification of the requirement are required.

Moving for Core Rotations

If a learner must move outside of San Antonio for Year 3 Core Rotations, they may seek additonal funding to account for the moving expenses. Receipts are required and the maximum amount is $2,500 net. 

COMLEX Level-2

In Year 3, funding allocations are provided for COMLEX Level 2- CE, PE, and travel. If a learner incurs expenses higher than the allocated amount, a COA Adjustment is permitted. Receipts are required demonstrating that the expenses were higher than the allocation. 

Residency

In Year 4, funding allocations are provided for residency-related expenses. If a learner incurs expenses higher than the allocated amount, a COA Adjustment is permitted. Receipts are required demonstrating that the expenses were higher than the allocation.
