Welcome to Colorado State University's Net Price Calculator! We're happy you are beginning to explore how to plan and pay for your college education. This tool is designed to help you approximate the cost of a CSU education, based on your unique circumstances.
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 CSU.
Be aware that colleges have different resources and financial aid policies, so your "net price" will vary from institution to institution. If you are comparing institutions, please remember that 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.
When you're ready to begin, you can sign in with your College Board user name and password or use the calculator as a guest. The advantage of signing in is that the information you enter will be saved in your account, so you can use it again and again if you are comparing other colleges of interest. If you have any questions about the financial aid process at Colorado State University, please contact Student Financial Services at 970-491-6321 for more detailed information. We look forward to partnering with you to finance a CSU education! Go RAMS!!
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:
- This is not an application for admission or financial aid.
- The results will only be as reliable as the data you provide.
- 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.
- 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.
