The Cost of Attendance (COA) is the ESTIMATED cost of completing a full year at Montana State University Billings (MSUB) and includes weighted averages for direct educational costs (tuition, fees, room, board, books and supplies), and other indirect educational expenses (miscellaneous personal expenses and transportation).

COA vs. MSUB BILL: The COA does not reflect the actual bill that you will pay to MSUB. Your actual bill will be determined by the MSUB Business Services Office and any room and board costs for students living on campus will be determined by the Housing & Residence Life Office. Students should calculate their individual costs of attending using the 1920 Estimated Budget Worksheet or the 2021 Estimated Budget Worksheet.
