Welcome to the Net Price Calculator! We're happy you’re beginning to explore how to plan and pay for your college education. Rather than shy away from applying to colleges that seem to be out of your price range, results from the Net Price Calculator will show you how affordable those institutions may be. Based on the information you enter about your family financial situation, you will be presented with a sample award with the following caveats:
- Results are dependent on the accuracy and completeness of the information entered and are intended to provide only a general guide to your eligibility for financial aid. Different colleges have different resources and financial aid policies, so your "net price" may vary from one institution to another.
- Any calculated award is not guaranteed by Washington State Community College and is meant to be an indication of the aid you may be eligible to receive. WSCC's Financial Aid Office is the final authority for determining the family contribution used to determine aid eligibility. Eligibility for other state aid is based on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This is not an application for financial aid. Your information will not be retained or transmitted to WSCC in any way.
Even if you're not going to college in the near future, the net price calculator will still be helpful. Younger students and their parents can use this tool to learn about college costs and receive early financial aid information. You can create "what if" scenarios based on expected family income and anticipated expenses, and start to plan and save well before applying to college.
