Welcome to the Net Price Calculator

Welcome to the Excelsior College Net Price Calculator! Excelsior College is an accredited, nonprofit distance education college primarily serving adult students attending college part time. Since financial aid programs also apply to part-time students, Excelsior is a good place to learn more about your part-time financial aid options. In addition, nearly half of Excelsior’s students are members of the military and veterans, so we can also assist with information about accessing Military Tuition Assistance (TA) and veterans’ education benefits. Our Financial Aid team is the top-notch when it comes to working with adults seeking to complete their degrees, so you’ve come to the right place.

The Net Price Calculator will help you determine your eligibility for financial aid and estimate your out-of-pocket expenses. So before you shy away from colleges that seem to be out of your price range, use the Net Price Calculator to find out how affordable those institutions may be. Excelsior will help you every step of the way.

Even if you're too busy to attend college in the near future, the Net Price Calculator will still be a helpful planning tool for planning ahead. The calculator lets you create "what if" scenarios based on expected family income and anticipated expenses. Start to save and plan now, well before applying to college.

Colleges have different resources and financial aid policies, so your "net price" will vary from institution to institution. Also, special circumstances are considered by financial aid offices on a case-by-case basis, so if your situation is unusual contact the financial aid office at the colleges to which you are admitted.

When you're ready to begin, 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 to calculate your net price at other colleges as your search expands. Good luck!

  • 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 gives an early indication of how much and what types of financial aid you might qualify for if you were to attend Excelsior College during the academic year indicated. When you consider Excelsior, be aware that strives to remove obstacles to the educational goals of adult learners – including financial obstacles -- and to meet the needs of those traditionally underserved in higher education. The vast majority of Excelsior students enroll with prior college credits, which also serve to reduce the costs of attendance.

 We hope the Net Price Calculator will give you a clear picture of options and opportunities so you can make more informed decisions about whether Excelsior College is right for you.

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 college 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 family’s financial situation so you should have recent tax forms or pay stubs on hand before you begin.
