Each aid applicant is assigned a budget and Cost of Attendance (COA), which is an estimate of expenses they may incur in an academic year. If a student’s COA does not accurately reflect their expenses, they may request a reevaluation by submitting a Request for a Budget Adjustment Form and supporting documentation.
Budget adjustments may be approved for:
- Purchase of a personal computer
- Expenses associated with a disability
- Child care costs
- Unusual transportation expenses
- Room and board expenses
