Can I use money from my Student or Parent loan to pay for off-campus housing or groceries?


Last Updated: June 30, 2022

The school will set your cost of attendance (budget) based on whether you live on-campus or off-campus.

Most schools will allow extra funds for books, living expenses, transportation, etc. Speak with your school's financial aid department if you have questions.

Once the money is sent to your school, the funds will be applied towards your bill. If there's any excess amount, the school will send you a refund for the difference that you can use to pay for additional expenses.
