Welcome to the Net Price Calculator

Welcome to Brown's Net Price Calculator.  This tool has been designed in collaboration with the College Board to assist prospective students and their families with estimating a family contribution and any need-based award, if the student were to attend Brown.

  • All institutional aid awarded by Brown is based on a family’s demonstrated need as determined by the Office of Financial Aid.  
  • Brown, as a member of the Ivy League, does not offer aid based on academic achievement, athletic ability, or any other form of merit.  
  • This calculator is not intended for international students.
  • The calculator may not provide accurate results for students who are over the age of 24 or are otherwise considered federally independent.
  • This calculator may not provide accurate results for families wh own a business and/or rental real estate, have foreign earned income, or have more than one child attending college.
  • If parents are divorced or separated, the calculator should be completed separately by the custodial and noncustodial parents. Each contribution should then be added together for the estimated total parent contribution.
  • The cost of attendance, estimated family contribution, and estimated awards are based on Brown's financial aid policies for the 2019-20 academic year. Any changes in policies may affect the estimated family contribution and award at the time of admission.
  • Before you get started, gather yours and your parents’ most recent federal tax return, W2(s), and any savings, investments and other asset values.  It is important to read each question carefully, as the estimated results are only as reliable as the information you provide in the calculator.
