Comparing financial aid awards can be really confusing! Why not let COLLEGEdata do the analysis for you? Just enter your financial aid award details and we'll calculate your net price for your first year and estimate the full cost to earn your degree at each college.
The bright green and blue Net Price bars make it easy to see how your awards match up at a glance, but you can also compare all cost and award items line-by-line. See how your awards compare to the average financial aid awards at the colleges. And - because money isn't the only thing that matters when you're considering which college is the best deal - you can also compare important factors like graduation rates and average student loan debt.
