Welcome to the Net Price Calculator

Welcome to Hampden-Sydney's Net Price Calculator. We're happy you are beginning to explore how to plan and pay for your college education. Using the Net Price Calculator, you can estimate your eligibility for financial aid and estimate your out-of-pocket expenses. We hope this calculator will show you and your family that a Hampden-Sydney education may be affordable even if your income and assets are limited.  The results of the calculations give you an estimate of your award at Hampden-Sydney College if you had enrolled in Fall 2017 based, in part, on the academic and financial information you entered, and is not a guarantee of future costs or awards. 

If you're not going to college in the near future, the Net Price Calculator can 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, which will allow you to start planning and saving well before applying to college.

When you're ready to begin making your calculations, 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 to calculate your net price at other colleges of interest. 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 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 October 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.
