Estimate Your Financial Aid

Unlike most items you will purchase in life, the initial "sticker" price of college is only one factor in determining its actual cost. Merit scholarships and financial aid based on your family's income can significantly reduce your family's out-of-pocket costs. What you pay in the end will vary depending on your family's income, family fize, number of family members in college, and assets. Key to determining your financial aid eligibility is the "Effective Family Contribution."
