Sometimes the student's actual expenses exceed Cornell’s budgeted cost to attend. When this happens, a budget increase is necessary. The total cost of attendance can be increased to include additional educational costs, allowing eligibility for more loan or work funding. If the student's Cornell Grant funding was reduced because of an outside scholarship, some or all of the grant can be reinstated through this process.
