Budget Adjustments

The estimated cost of attendance includes average amounts for standard educational expenses incurred by all students. This includes tuition, room/board, books & supplies, local transportation and miscellaneous expenses.

To request a budget increase for one of the following reason. Please contact our office in writing.

  • additional course-related expenses
  • child care expenses
  • disability-related expenses during the academic year

If a budget increase is approved it is unlikely that it will be covered with additional grant funding. You will need to apply for the appropriate loan program – typically Federal Direct PLUS Loans, Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loans or student private financing – depending on your circumstances.

NOTE: All cost of attendance adjustments are at the discretion of professional judgment conducted by the Santa Clara University Financial Aid Office.
