  • The following standard expenses are included in a student's budget (dependent on program, year in school, and housing status). Budgets have been increased in order to provide ample funds for all students without the need to make adjustments. Many students will be able to manage on considerably less than the budget indicates and we strongly encourage students to do so.

    Due to the limited amount of institutional funds received each year, these funds will be applied to a portion of the basic budget. Any expenses not funded with institutional funds must be funded with federal or private loans. During the 2013-2014 academic year, the amount allotted in the budget for room and utilities will be calculated on the basis of a one-bedroom apartment.  

    Listed below are the 2013-2014 student budgets for each of our educational programs:

Basic budgets will be reviewed prior to processing additional loan funds for the student. Actual charges will be calculated to determine student’s eligibility for additional loan funds.

    Half time student budgets will be based on the minimum number of credit hours (5) needed (each semester) to apply for financial aid. Basic budget will be reviewed prior to processing additional loan funds. Actual charges will be calculated (at the student’s request) before processing additional loan funds.
