Welcome to the Net Price Calculator

Welcome to the Net Price Calculator! You've come to the right place. We're happy you are beginning to explore how to plan and pay for your college education. At IUPUI (Indianapolis), IUPUC (Columbus), and IUFW (Fort Wayne), we will help you every step of the way. Using our net price calculator, you can find out your eligibility for financial aid and estimate your out-of-pocket expenses. The results from the net price calculator will show you just how affordable college can be.

Even if your not planning to attend 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 college.

If you decide to apply to school, there are some additional steps that you will need to take to ensure that you receive consideration for financial aid. Primarily, you will need to complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The purpose of the FAFSA is to determine which financial aid programs you may be eligible for by calculating the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) based upon your family’s financial information. You can begin the process of completing the FAFSA at

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 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 new students 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; it is not intended for continuing or graduate students.  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.
