Each year the financial aid office prepares a student expense budget defining estimated standard allowances for education costs for graduate and professional students. The cost of attendance includes average amounts for standard expenses such as tuition, fees, books, supplies, room, board, and other living expenses. Estimated budgets differ by college and your actual costs may be different depending on unit enrollment and other program fees.

Although we encourage students to limit their borrowing to the amount of the standard Cost of Attendance or ideally less, in some cases we can increase your budget to take into account additional units, or additional expenses such as film projects, medical expenses, CMS costs, or child care expenses. Students who wish to increase their budget due to special circumstances should complete and submit one of the forms below:
