Student Budgeting Worksheets 
for Medical and Graduate Students

PCOM's student budgeting worksheets are designed to help medical and graduate students determine how much they may need to borrow in student loans to meet their educational and living expenses.

Our student budgeting worksheets are completed in just a few simple steps as users enter their out of pocket payments (if any), initial financial aid awards and monthly living expense costs. PCOM's student budgeting Google sheets will then calculate remaining unmet need and how much additional loan a student may need to apply for.

Overview of our student budgeting worksheets

How PCOM's student budgeting sheets work

PCOM's student budgeting worksheets are completed in four easy steps:

  1. Our Google sheets automatically fill in the estimated tuition and fees for PCOM's academic programs.
  2. Students enter any deposits or any out of pocket payments toward tuition.
  3. Third, students list their financial aid amounts (Federal student loans, private student loans, PCOM scholarships, third-party scholarships, etc.) as awarded by the PCOM Financial Aid Office or external sources.
  4. Last, users enter their monthly living and miscellaneous school expenses for categories such as books, rent, utilities, food, health costs and more.

The completed sheet will then calculate how much unmet need a student may have as well as a recommendation for how much Federal Grad PLUS loan to apply for. The sheet will also show how the financial aid and loan disbursements are divided over the appropriate terms enrolled.
