Welcome to the Net Price Calculator for Christopher Newport University.

It is important to begin the planning process for financing a college education as early as possible. Using the Net Price Calculator, you can estimate your eligibility for financial aid and out-of-pocket expenses to attend CNU.

Keep in mind that each college and university uses different factors within their individual Net Price Calculator. Please remember that your CNU calculation WILL NOT include academic merit-based scholarships you may be eligible for through the President’s Leadership or Honors Programs. As a public university in the Commonwealth of Virginia, tuition is not discounted. Need-based financial assistance is provided based on theEstimated Family Contribution (EFC) determined by your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Academic merit scholarships provided by CNU must be applied for separately (see section Z – “My Task List” for more information).

Also consider that the Net Price Calculator uses an estimated cost of attendance, which includes incidental expenses beyond what your bill will be for tuition, fees, room and board.

As always, please contact the Christopher Newport University Financial Aid Office with questions and/or concerns about financing your CNU education.

    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 a college freshman 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 parents' financial situation so it might be helpful to have recent tax forms or pay stubs on hand before you begin.
