Financial Aid Information for Junior Year

Tools to help you understand the cost of college:

Utilize the NET PRICE CALCULATOR.  The net price calculator is a free online tool located on each college's website that gives you a personalized estimate of net price.

  • A college’s net price calculator asks you questions about your family’s finances and may also ask you questions about your GPA, test scores, activities and other things that may qualify you for financial aid. It uses your answers to figure out how much money in grants and scholarships the college is likely to award you. It then subtracts that number from the full cost of attendance to estimate how much the college might really cost you.
  • Why are Net Price Calculators Important: By providing personalized estimates, net price calculators offer a more informed way of deciding which colleges you can afford. Knowing your net price gives you the best idea of what you’ll pay for a particular college
