Note: If adjustment(s) are made to the student’s charges on student account (tuition, housing,meals/meal plan, etc.), the student’s budget/cost of attendance (COA) will also be adjusted (up ordown based on the adjustment made by Business and Finance). The adjustment may negativelyimpact the student’s financial aid eligibility (i.e. decrease financial aid award).

The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships utilizes these budgets to determine how much financial aid will be offered. Total financial aid offered from all sources, including private sources, cannot exceed the total cost of attendance. Students who have unusual circumstances are encouraged to contact the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships. A Financial Aid Counselor can evaluate your situation and with appropriate documentation can possibly make an adjustment to your Cost of Attendance (Budget) to allow for the personal circumstances (i.e., the purchase of a computer).
