These financial aid budgets are used by the financial aid office to determine your aid eligibility. The budgets that the financial aid office uses are not the “real” cost to attend school, but the estimated total cost of attendance* in receiving one’s education during the school year.  All budgets are based on full-time enrollment.

*Estimated total cost of attendance: The estimated total cost associated with attending college which includes, but not all inclusive of, all direct school related expenses; living, personal and transportation expenses while attending school; and estimated loan fees (based on the entire financial aid population at Chaminade) of loans taken out while attending Chaminade.
