Welcome to the Net Price Calculator

The net price calculator is provided to give prospective first-time, first-year students who are U.S. Citizens or eligible Non-Citizens an estimate of what their family contribution might be if they were to attend Bryn Mawr College. Estimates are based on the 2018-19 cost of attendance and awarding rules. Because colleges have different financial aid policies, please note that “net price” will vary from institution to institution.

Bryn Mawr College is committed to working closely with families to make a Bryn Mawr education affordable, and recognizes that every student and family has a unique situation. Thus, just as we are unable to provide prospective students with an “admissions calculator” that considers all of the possible individual circumstances and achievements in their admission application, we are also unable to provide families with a financial aid calculator that considers all of the aspects of a family’s specific financial situation.

As a result, award estimates do not apply to students whose parents are divorced, students from families who own or have a portion of ownership in a business or farm, students from families with foreign income, domestic students who live abroad, or students from families that live outside of the United States. In addition, this calculator is not able to estimate the allocation of Bryn Mawr Merit Scholarships that are awarded based on a holistic review of the entire admission application, nor is it able to factor in outside scholarships, veterans benefits, employer tuition benefits, or other entitlements.

Any calculated award is not guaranteed by Bryn Mawr and is meant to be only an indication of the aid students may be eligible to receive. The Bryn Mawr Office of Financial Aid is the final authority for determining the family contribution used to determine grant and scholarship eligibility.

We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the Net Price Calculator or about financial aid in general. You may contact us by calling (610) 526-5245, or by emailing

Bryn Mawr College Merit Scholarship

Students admitted to Bryn Mawr College as first-year, first-time students are automatically considered for the Bryn Mawr Merit Scholarship; no additional application is required. Applicants are evaluated using Bryn Mawr’s holistic admission review process, which takes numerous factors into account including but not limited to academic coursework and performance, involvement in school and community, leadership qualities, standardized test scores, letters of recommendation, quality and content of writing, and potential to contribute in meaningful ways to the Bryn Mawr community.

Your estimate will not include possible merit scholarship.  Students may receive a Bryn Mawr Merit Scholarship with no demonstrated financial need. Merit scholarships may be awarded to U.S. citizens and permanent residents. In past years, awards have ranged from $8,500-$30,000 per year. Scholarships are awarded at the time of admission, and are renewable each year up to four years as long as the student remains in good academic standing with the College.

  • Families face many challenges when making a college decision; there is much to be considered and evaluated. Recognizing that each family brings with it a unique set of circumstances, Bryn Mawr Office of Financial Aid works to help students and their families navigate the process and find solutions.  In 2017-2018, the College supported 62% of the entering class with institutional grant assistance, demonstrating a substantial commitment to financial aid.

As you use the calculator, please remember:

  1. This is not an application for admission or financial aid.
  2. The results will only be as reliable as the data you provide.
  3. The results are an estimated indication of your net price and aid eligibility. The Office of Financial Aid has the final word on your financial aid award when you do apply.
  4. To apply for aid and receive additional information, visit the How To Apply portion of the Office of Financial Aid website.
