Biotechnology Masters - Projected Cost of Attendance


2016 - 2017


Your actual cost of attendance budget will be viewable when you log in to your EVMS Online Financial Aid System via your student portal.  The cost of attendance budget includes loan fees for based on in-state (IS) or out of state (OS) budgets.  A student's individual cost of attendance may be slightly different from what appears on this page based on approved adjustments.  Review your budget closely and only borrow what you truly need. 

As part of the Higher Education Act, as amended, regulations governing Cost of Attendance elements were established.  Federal regulation requires that all need determinations be based on a single student budget for a program.  If you demonstrate unusual expenses, see the guidelines and form to request a budget increase.  All requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis within federal regulations.
