2019 - 2020 Estimated Cost of Attendance: Student Budgets


Each year, the SGU Office of Financial Aid develops an estimated cost of attendance, or budget, for financial aid recipients. Financial Aid budgets are developed using guidelines provided by the Department of Education and estimated costs associated with each college/university.

SGU Office of Financial Aid establishes a modest, yet adequate cost of living allowance to determine financial aid eligibility each academic year. These budgets are used to determine student financial aid eligibility and include both direct and indirect educational expenses. Student budgets include current estimated expenses and are subject to change.

Based on the 2019 - 2020 academic year, the following are estimated costs for full time students in the DVM program.
