Financial Aid Information


The FAFSA will be available on January 1. Visit www.fafsa.gov for more information. 

Useful Tools

FAFSA4caster: Want to know how much it will cost to send your student to college, then check out the FAFSA4caster at www.fafsa.gov. This will help determine your eligibility for federal financial aid.

Net Price Calculator: Every college by law is required to have a Net Price Calculator (NPC) on their website. Some are more visible than others, but if you Google the college's name plus "net price calculator" you should find it. The calculator provides an estimated "Net Price" (estimated cost of attendance minus estimated grant and scholarship aid). This tool will provide an estimate of how much aid you might be eligible to receive from the federal government and the institution. Keep in mind this is an estimate and formulas change over time.
