The Office of Financial Aid establishes cost of attendance budgets that are used to determine financial aid eligibility. These budgets include estimates for tuition, rent, books and other expenses.

Here are a couple documents that may help you estimate the total cost of attendance:

Related & Miscellaneous Expenses

Students must purchase their own books. Students should come with enough funds to purchase their books and any other items necessary for beginning study, even if the student is expecting financial aid. Any scholarship or loan money that is remaining in the student’s account after tuition has been paid may be use to reimburse for the cost of books and other expenses. The book allowance is based on full-time enrollment, but expenses may vary depending on the course and degree program. Book allowance for 2013-2014 is $1,850.00.

Rent is based on students living in Calvin Theological Seminary owned housing. This may be located on campus or at our apartments a short distance from campus. For detailed housing costs, please see the housing office page.

Other Expenses
Other expenses include allowances for transportation, clothing, recreation, medical insurance, utilities and other miscellaneous living expenses. These expenses vary greatly based on the individual student. The estimates are considered reasonable, but modest, and are determined after surveying segments of our student body.
