Student Budgets

The following standard expenses are included in a student's budget (based on program and enrollment status). Moderate budgets have been created to provide funds for students to cover tuition and reasonable living expenses. We strongly encourage students to manage on considerably less than the budget indicates. 

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 2021-2022 academic year, the amount allotted in the budget for room and utilities is calculated on the basis of a one-bedroom apartment.   

Listed below are the 2021-2022 student budgets for each of our educational programs:

*Includes apparel and upkeep, entertainment, food away from home and miscellaneous expenses.  No adjustments will be made to the basic budget.
