your medical school education is an investment in your future. Your educational
costs can be minimized if you make wise financial choices during your education at
KCU. Students can make adjustments in their living expenses so they do not have
to borrow up to their full cost of attendance. Financial Aid is able to offer you
with opportunities to borrow money for basic areas that you need in order to
live and attend school. These loans do accumulate interest while you are in
school and during your residency.
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 2016-17 academic year. You should calculate your monthly
expenses based upon your anticipated expenses for the academic year.
