Research Masters (Thesis) - Projected Cost of Attendance


2016 - 2017

Disbursements will be made at the beginning of each eligible term (enrolled at least half time) during the academic year.  Actual cost of attendance will be based on student's indicated enrollment on the EVMS Online Financial Aid Application as revised with a Revised Education Plan.  Enrollment changes must be updated for any changes during the academic year.  Cost of attendance projection (**) based on 25 credits in year one and 24 credits in year two for this academic year.   Note: Second year students may choose a non-thesis track which would reduce hours required.  Students are required to notify financial aid via a Revised Education Plan if they have selected that track.  

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.
