Student Budget Tool Instructions

This budget worksheet is designed for you to fill in the gray areas while referring to your financial aid awards and resources. Additionally you should assess the allowable fees and make sure that our estimates are in line with your actual costs. The budget is based on the standard HSPH budget and allowable living expenses. Standard financial aid packages can not exceed the cost of living budget that we allow without an appeal.

Students with less expenses than what we allow should consider reducing loans if applicable. You are encouraged to review expenses and review the yellow section at the bottom to determine if there will be any short falls. Reviewing the monthly versus semesterly breakdown in expenses will hopefully help you in staying on a monthly budget and not overspending early in each term. If you find that you have a shortfall, supplemental loans may be an alternative.

Students are encouraged to review the supplemental loan material in the forms section of MyFinaid to assess which loan is best and how you can apply for these types of loans. Students are not packaged these loans, and applications are a separate process.
