Intelligent Student Budget Calculator Template Worksheet for Excel - Designed for Canadian College & University Students

Feel free to download our intelligent student budget calculator worksheet for Excel. It’s a free budget template designed for Canadian students that is so much more than just a boring template (even an Excel beginner can use it!). It actually makes budgeting a little fun because it sees what you are doing, and it gently responds by letting you know if your spending is outside of what experts would recommend based on your income. It also offers helpful suggestions as you put together your budget – helping you avoid common pitfalls and increasing your chances of putting together a budget that will actually work! Once you’re finished your budget, you can ask the calculator to review it and look for any opportunities to help you save money or tighten up your budget.

This student budget calculator template is designed for use on a term by term basis where you enter the money you’ve saved up for college or university along with your student loans and then you enter your up-front expenses such as tuition, books, and fees. Finally you enter the normal budgeting part of the worksheet where you put down all your monthly expenses.

If you’re looking to create an annual personal or household budget, we also have a regular Excel budget calculator template that also offers the same interactive, intelligent features as our student budget calculator. If you are a mature student with a family our regular budget calculator may work better for your situation. You can access it here.
