Living Expenses: The amount of funding needed for one year varies per student because of work term living expenses. Students work throughout the nation and the world.

However, the $3,500 assures that the student has a resource if additional funding is needed.

When planning your funds for enrollment, please consider that funds are needed for at least 4 - 5 years for the undergraduate program. Financial assistance is not readily available and the cost of attending Kettering University may increase from year to year.
