At Penn State he was named to the All-Big Ten Freshman Team in 2007, was a two-time All-Big Ten Second Team selection in both 2009 and 2010, and in his senior was a CoSIDA/ESPN Second Team Academic All-District selection and was named to the Wolstein Classic All-Tournament Team.

During his college years Cost also played for the Lancaster Inferno in their single season in the National Premier Soccer League in 2008.
