Welcome to the Net Price Calculator

Welcome to the Bethel University Net Price Calculator for future freshmen! This calculator uses student’s high school academics, Bethel legacy (immediate family that attended Bethel), parents serving as full-time pastors or missionaries, racial and ethnic diversity, and demonstrated financial need to estimate the out-of-pocket cost to attend Bethel for the year indicated.  

  • How does it work? The calculator measures the financial strength of your family and uses other facts you provide to estimate the amount of grants, scholarships and other financial aid that is likely to be available to you. Your "net price" is the difference between that amount and the cost of attendance.

After calculating your net price remember to explore the following:

  1. My Resources helps you identify funds to pay your portion of college expenses.
  2. My Next Steps provides links to Bethel’s competitive scholarships (which are not incorporated into this estimate), private scholarship search websites and information about applying for admission.
  3. My Information allows you to modify your data, then re-calculate the Net Price using the new data.

PLEASE NOTE.  This calculator should be used as a tool to help your family plan for college.  The results provided here are only an estimate and do not guarantee the actual financial aid you will receive. The information entered into the calculator is not a financial aid application, and results will not be transmitted to Bethel University.

The calculator's result is not a legally binding contract. The Bethel financial aid office will make the final determination of your aid eligibility based on a review of all of the components of a completed financial aid application.

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. 

Colleges have different resources and financial aid policies, so your "net price" will vary from institution to institution. Also, special circumstances are considered by financial aid offices on a case-by-case basis. If your situation is unusual, you may want to contact the financial aid office at the colleges to which you are admitted.
