**The off-campus apartment budget assumes that most students need a minimum of $800 per month for rent based on the average amount that most pay in a shared apartment. Students in off-campus apartments are required to provide a copy of their lease to verify their monthly rent if they intend to use loan funds to cover their living expenses. The maximum housing allowance is $1,500 per month.

In order to be eligible to have the indirect costs of housing, food and personal expenses included in the cost of attendance for the purpose of determining maximum loan amounts, a student must be relocating to the area or ceasing current level of employment (full-time or part-time). In other words, students who are not incurring these living expenses as a cost specifically associated with the decision to enroll in the MPS program are limited to borrowing educational loans for tuition, books, supplies, and transportation. Students who are enrolled in the LIM College Student Health Insurance policy are eligible to include that expense in their cost of attendance should they choose to. All requests to borrow for indirect costs must be made in writing on the Indirect Costs Request form and eligibility are verified by a Student Financial Services counselor (212-752-1530 ext 389 / sfs [at] limcollege.edu).

Payment Options

Make a payment using a personal check, money order or cash in person or via mail. Do not mail cash. Make all check payments payable to LIM College and mail to:
