Cost-of-Attendance Budgets

The cost of attendance budgets below are approved annually by the School of Medicine for the upcoming academic year. They are based in large part on data from a bi-annual survey of what our current medical students are actually spending for books and supplies, housing, food, personal expenses, and transportation.

The costs included in these budgets reflect living expenses for the academic year only. Living expenses for non-school periods and for spouses and/or other dependents are not included because they are treated in the need analysis formula as an allowance against income rather than a direct cost. In the case of a married student, therefore, the spouse's living costs are not included in the budget, but the expected family contribution is reduced by the amount appropriate to maintain the spouse and home.

Some students have extenuating circumstances that may justify construction of an individual cost-of-attendance that is higher than the standard one. Such adjustments are primarily applicable for the purpose of validating need for outside loan assistance. In all cases, appropriate documentation must be provided. Examples of potentially appropriate adjustments are below.
