College Costs

There is more to the cost of college than simply your tuition and fees. The cost of education can also include indirect costs not paid directly to the college, but are still considered necessary for your education such as books and supplies and other living expenses.

At Lamar State College Port Arthur, the estimated Cost of Attendance (COA) includes all the necessary expenses a student typically incurs for a full academic year. The actual COA may vary from student to student based on factors such as your residency, your course load, and your living situation.

If you’ve filed your FAFSA for financial aid, the college will subtract your Expected Family Contribution from your Cost of Attendance to determine your financial need. Your financial need is the cap for your need based aid (grants, work study, and subsidized loans).
