Room/Board/Personal Expenses: After loan fees, the 9-month living expenses come to a monthly allowance of approximately $2,110. While each student's personal expenses will vary, the living expense is the same for all students and is the maximum amount of financial aid that may be disbursed by the university. If you plan to fund your living expenses solely with financial aid, you must plan and maintain a personal budget within your living allowance.
