Your student budget is the amount of money we estimate you will need for tuition, books, and living expenses for the 9-month academic year (October-June). Student budgets include only the student's educational costs; other family members' expenses cannot be included in the budget.
The figures below are subject to change each academic year. Budgets for prior years are also available.
