Student Budgets

The following figures are standard budgets, they do not represent the actual costs each student will incur individually. They do, however, represent the maximum aid that can be awarded a student at San Diego Mesa College. It is strongly encouraged that students develop their own budgets before beginning school.

All of the following budgets are based on 12 units (full time enrollment) per semester

ACTUAL ENROLLEMENT LEVELS:

  • FULL-TIME = 12 units
  • THREE QUARTERS TIME = 9 units
  • HALF-TIME = 6 units
  • LESS THAN HALF-TIME = Less Than 6 units

How Is Financial Need Determined?
The federal government standardizes the exact calculations used to determine Expected Family Contribution. This means that your contribution would be assessed in the same way no matter what school you attended. Actual awards can vary by school because of the differences in cost. The methodology used can be explained with the following calculation:

Cost of Attendance - Expected Family Contribution (EFC) = Financial Need

2018 - 2019 STUDENT BUDGET (COST OF ATTENDANCE)

(All of the following budgets are based on 12 units (full time enrollment) per semester. The following figures are standard budgets, they do not represent the actual costs each student will incure individually.  Loan fees will be added to the budgets for Federal Direct Loan borrowers.  Please see the Loan Request packet for actual loan fees.)
