A college’s cost of attendance is the amount a student who receives no financial aid will generally pay each year to attend that college, assuming you are paying housing fees to the college and not living with relatives. The “Net Price Calculator” cost is your REAL cost to attend – the amount you pay out-of-pocket after your financial aid is deducted. A college’s Net Price Calculator will therefore uncover your true out-of-pocket cost to attend their college.
Two colleges may have vastly different figures for the annual cost of attendance, but your Net Price to attend both may be similar. In fact, your Net Price may be lower at the college with the higher cost of attendance. The Net Price is your key to knowing what your college will really cost you. The Net Price calculator is mandated by the U.S. Department of Education and all colleges must provide this information to students on their college website.
