Welcome to the Net Price Calculator

Welcome to City University of Seattle’s Net Price Calculator.  We are pleased that you are exploring how to plan and pay for your college education. Using this Net Price Calculator, you can find out your potential eligibility for financial aid and get an indication of what your “net price” or out-of-pocket expenses might be.  Rather than shy away from applying for admission based on perceived costs, use the results from the net price calculator to make informed decisions about college affordability.  Colleges have different resources and financial aid policies, so your “net price” will vary from institution to institution. 

Regardless of your estimated results, keep in mind that if you want to come to CityU, we want to make it a reality for you.  Our goal is to provide every student with the best possible aid package. In addition, CityU offers a tuition payment plan as well as a number of need and merit based scholarship programs. Please note that CityU’s need and merit scholarships available to eligible students are not reflected in the results from the Net Price Calculator. Receiving one of our scholarships may reduce your out-of-pocket expenses as determined by this tool.  Therefore, it is important to remember that the Net Price Calculator is designed to paint a picture of your need-based assistance eligibility based solely on financial criteria.

  • 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.

The calculator is designed to give you an early indication of how much and what types of financial aid you might qualify for if you were attending school full-time in the academic year indicated. It is a tool which we hope will give you a clear picture of options and opportunities so you can make more informed decisions about your college choices.

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 net price calculator will only give you an estimate of your net price and aid eligibility. The financial aid office has the final word on your financial aid award.
  4. You must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible after January 1 of the year you plan to attend college.

Completing the calculator should take no more than 20 minutes of your time. You will need to answer some basic questions about your financial situation so it might be helpful to have recent tax forms or pay stubs on hand before you begin.
