  • These expenses are derived using market surveys and direct costs to the student in order to determine student loan awards. When attending WMU-Cooley, you will want to create a personal budget that will fit into these educational expenses.

Allowable increases include costs associated with childcare while attending educational related activities/classes, and Academic Resources Center (ARC) academic testing. These situations may be considered for a professional judgment request. You will need to speak with the Associate Director of Enrollment and Student Services at your campus regarding these circumstances if they do occur, as you will have to submit appropriate documentation with your request.
