Cost of Attendance Adjustment Request (COAAR) – Law September April 1

Increases to the Cost of Attendance (also known as student budget), if approved, typically only result in additional loan eligibility. Unless the increase will be met with a scholarship, you must provide proof that you reviewed your current federal student loan balance and completed a repayment estimate calculation.

Please be ready to submit the following:

    1. Proof of current student loan balance. A printout of your federal “Financial Aid Review” (not required if no current loan debt)

    2. Anticipated monthly student loan payment. Use calculators on www.studentloans.gov website, listed under “Repayment Plans & Calculator”. Use your current loan balance plus what you anticipate you’ll borrow in subsequent years

After reviewing the allowable expenses and completing the above steps, e-mail financial-aid-law@berkeley.edu to obtain copy of the COAAR form.
