Net Price Calculator
The Net Price Calculator is a tool that can help estimate the “net price” to attend a particular school or college. The net price is the the full cost to attend a specific school, less any grants and scholarships you may be eligible to receive. The net price includes direct charges (tuition and fees, room and board) and indirect costs (books and supplies, transportation and personal expenses).
How does it work?
- First, the Net Price Calculator looks at the full price.
- Then, using the financial information you enter into the calculator, the Net Price Calculator estimates the amount of money your family would be expected to contribute to pay for school.
- Finally, the Net Price Calculator evaluates your eligibility for financial aid at a specific school by matching your financial and personal characteristics to the criteria that schools use to distribute financial aid (need-based grants as well as merit-based scholarships).
