How are Estimated Expenses Calculated?

General Notes

  1. Four quarters tuition is at the Autumn 2018 rate, per the UW Office of Planning & Budgeting Tuition and Fees files.
  2. Living expenses are calculated from the 2018-19 Student Budget Nine-Month Expenses. (Textbooks and course supplies, rent, utilities and food, personal and miscellaneous, and transportation).
    Undergraduate students are calculated using the “Students with dependents” rate.
  3. Dependent expenses are calculated from the 2018-19 Student Budget Nine-Month Expenses using the “Students with dependents” rate, based on the following factors:

Spouse = [(35% of rent, utilities and food) non-traditional room and board) + personal and miscellaneous + transportation] (this is a 9-month figure converted to 12 months).
Child = Figure based on the Department of Education needs analysis EFC Formula, 2018-2019
(Table C3: Income Protection Allowance, see note for amount allowed for each additional family member (this is a 9-month figure converted to 12 months)).
