Using the University's Net Cost Calculator (also sometimes referred to as the Net Price Calculator,) you can get a sense of the types of need-based aid for which you may be eligible. This calculator is intended to assist you in your college planning. If you are a transfer student, please use the Transfer Net Cost Calculator to estimate your individual cost of attendance.
