NASFAA's Code of Conduct states that institutional award notifications and/or other institutionally provided materials shall include "a breakdown of individual components of the institution's Cost of Attendance, designating all potential billable charges." Recent studies and related news articles have reported wide variations in living costs, even among institutions from similar geographic areas. This panel will examine the common ethical questions that pertain to proper disclosures and discuss best practices in developing a COA.
