    It's an expensive school, make no mistake, but the financial aid is still very good. In the end, it comes out (for me) to be slightly more expensive than a state school back home.

    The price tag of any college can add sticker-shock. Admittedly, College of the Atlantic isn't cheap. It is a private institution and is priced as such. However, students at College of the Atlantic come from all walks of life, all income levels, etc. An impressive number of international students flock here each year. COA is extremely generous with scholarship money, grants, etc. A very committed staff will personally take the time to make sure you can afford your tuition. You can also choose to be involved in work-study, which is an enriching part of the COA experience. One of the positions is well sought after - kitchen duty, where students learn to prepare organic and local foods with care. Whatever the price tag, COA is invaluable. It will diversify you, allow you to travel (money is set aside for this), change your perspective on the world, and introduce you to people that can and will help you grow as a person.

    COA gives generous financial aid and is a need-blind school. I received the Presidential Scholarship so I am granted $12,000 in addition, to money set aside for research or study abroad. But, I hear from my friends as well that COA offered them more aid than any of the other schools they applied to.
