The standard living expense budget is added to the cost of tuition and fees to determine a student's total cost of education. These costs will not appear on your campus billing statement, but are included in your budget when determining financial need.  You are already incurring the majority of the charges listed below as your current living expenses ( rent, house payment, food, utilities, gasoline and auto repairs, etc.).

This budget calculator provided by the Federal Office of Student Aid may be useful to estimate your personal costs.
