Students may apply for a one-time computer supplement and increase their budget, not to exceed $2,000, through the Chicago Campus Office of Financial Aid. Also, if a student elects to use the university health insurance and has indicated this on the Need Access application, the student budget will be increased and a loan will be offered to cover the cost.
