Use the EFC Calculator to calculate your Expected Family Contribution. Find out how much colleges expect you to pay and how much financial aid you are eligible for.
This is the amount colleges expect you to pay. To see how much financial aid you may get, subtract the EFC from the college's cost of attendance.
Use the Compare Financial Aid Awards tool to find out which college is the best deal, and why.
Enter your financial aid award details and we'll calculate your net price for next year and estimate the full cost to earn your degree at each college. View your costs and awards side-by-side and see how they match up. See how your awards compare to the average financial aid awards at the colleges and compare other important factors like graduation rates and average student loan debt.
Is "$??,???" in your results for any college? This means that some data we need to calculate your Net Price or Cost of Degree is missing. Just go to the Compare Awards tool and update your cost and award details to get your results.
Net Price is your estimated out-of-pocket to attend a college for one academic year. It includes any portion of the cost of attendance that is not covered by grants and scholarships. Cost of Degree is a high level estimate of the cost to earn your bachelor's degree based on your estimated net price and various assumptions. Refer to the help on the Compare Financial Aid Awards page for details.
