Educational Expenses

Your educational expenses are the costs associated with attending college. These costs include: tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, transportation, personal expenses and other costs associated with your program of study or with attendance.

Budgets comprised of these educational expenses are used to award financial aid.

It is important to understand that you may make choices that increase your expenses. For instance, you may choose housing that has a higher cost. Personal choices are not reflected in your student budget when aid is awarded.

However, there are times when your expenses are higher and are not within your control. In these cases, you may meet with your Financial Aid Advisor to review these expenses and ask for an adjustment to your budget. These items may include, child care expenses while you attend school, one-time tool costs for your program of study or required lab fees.
