Cost of living Estimates

Cost of living are estimates of expenses that you will incur to go to school that you will not pay directly to Baylor College of Medicine. These costs you may have already budgeted, such as housing expenses, food, and transportation. The Student Financial Aid Office will provide you with an estimate of these costs based on sample data derived from the Baylor College of Medicine campus you will attend. We will use both the Cost of Living index and the number of months you will be enrolled at Baylor. Below is the chart we will use to estimate your expenses.

Cost of Attendance for the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences

The Cost of Attendance is the combination of the direct expenses billed to you by Baylor College of Medicine and the estimated costs of living you will incur as a student. That cost of attendance is the maximum amount you will be able to receive in financial aid while you are studying at Baylor College of Medicine.
