This budget information is provided to assist you in estimating your monthly budget and managing your available financial resources (e.g., employment earnings, financial aid and assistance from family members) for the 2012-13 academic year.
Consequently, you should calculate your monthly expenses based upon your anticipated expenses for the academic year within the student budget. All allowances for expenses in this student budget are established based on the cost of living in the Kansas City area and are designed to provide a modest standard of living for one person. The cost of attendance is not normally adjusted to support children (exception – child care costs) and cannot be adjusted to provide for the spouse. Financial aid funds are to be used solely for educational expenses. It should be noted that the Dept. of Education’s definition of ‘educational expenses’ does not include car payments, credit card payments (or other financial obligations), higher-than-average rent, costs associated with home ownership, insurance for children and spouse, moving expenses and security deposits.
