Student Resources

One of the biggest challenges for any prospective student is determining the cost of living in a new city. The right tools and information can properly prepare you on determining the best situation for you.

To better stretch a graduate student stipend, the Student Financial Aid office offers a valuable budget planning tool that can help throughout a graduate career. The tool includes estimates of what current students are paying in rent, utilities, and other living expenses, Learn more about the budgeting tool and student money management services offered by the Student Financial Aid office so you can better estimate the costs of living in Kansas City.
