Financing Worksheets for Graduate Students

Use these worksheets to map out your cost to attend Brown University, estimate your living expenses, and explore your financing options.

Prospective and current graduate students can estimate their direct billed and indirect costs as well as explore financing options (including student loan eligibility), by using our financial worksheet, below. To ensure the most accurate results:

  • Review and/or check with your desired program to confirm semesters, terms and/or number of courses you will enroll for the upcoming academic year 
  • Have available the amount of resources you expect to have or receive, such as scholarship, stipends, outside awards, savings, Brown funding, etc. (Loan borrowing options are explored in the worksheet.)
  • For best results, download the worksheet to your desktop/laptop.
If you wish to appeal your departmental funding or have special financial circumstances, we suggest contacting your program directly.
Learn about allowances for personal expenses and details for special circumstances like loan eligibility appeals, leaves of absences, and withdrawals and refunds.
