A standard student budget is often referred to as the total cost of attendance. The standard student budget below was developed by SCO and reflects only the expenses of the student; it does not include expenses for additional family members. It also represents, in most cases, the maximum financial aid that you can receive from all sources (including educational loans and scholarships from outside sources).

The SCO Financial Aid Office can also assist in long-range financial planning by providing cost of attendance information for subsequent years, which will allow students to develop a more realistic cost analysis and also more realistic annual budgets. As part of financial planning, we will provide SCO students annually with a statement of student loan debt.
