A college's sticker price is the amount a student who receives no financial aid will pay to attend. Net price is your REAL cost to attend - the amount you pay out-of-pocket after financial aid is deducted.
Get a personalized estimate based on your unique financial situation and college choices. To estimate your net price, the Net Price Calculator looks at the college's cost of attendance, your financial aid eligibility, and recent financial aid awards at the college.
Two colleges may have vastly different sticker prices, but your net price to attend both may be similar. In fact, your net price may be lower at the college with the higher sticker price!
Net price is your key to knowing what college will really cost.
