In some cases, we can build an individual budget for a student or add additional educational expenses with appropriate documentation. Some of the more common expenses for which we can adjust a budget include the following:

  • dependent child care
  • disability-related expenses
  • computer purchase

In order to discuss having your budget adjusted, you would need to obtain appropriate documentation detailing the additional expenses and contact the Financial Aid Office.
