Welcome to the Olin College Net Price Calculator! We're happy you are beginning to explore how to plan and pay for your college education. Our combination of excellent academics and generous aid is why Princeton Review and Fiske Guide call us a "best buy" college, and Parents and Colleges magazine ranks us number one among the Top 10 financial aid providers in the country.  Using the net price calculator, you can estimate your eligibility for financial aid and out-of-pocket expenses. Results from the net price calculator will show you how affordable Olin can be!

If you decide to apply to Olin College, you will need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order for us to determine your financial need.  You will receive an award letter indicating the scholarships, grants, and loans for which you are eligible.

For now, the Net Price Calculator is a great way to estimate your aid.  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 compare your Olin net price with other colleges of interest. Good luck!

    Olin’s generous merit scholarship policy stems from one of the founding principles of the college - to provide a world-class engineering education at significantly reduced cost to students and their families.  In additon, we are committed to providing assistance to those students who demonstrate additional financial need.  Students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to receive consideration for institutional need-based funds.  The FAFSA should be received at Olin by February 15th for full consideration.  Please allow time for processing. 

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.

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. Estimated costs are based on currently available information and may not be the same as the year for which you intend to apply. The financial aid office has the final word on your financial aid award.
  4. Olin must receive the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by February 15th of the year you plan to attend college to receive full consideration for Olin institutional funds.

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.

NOTE:  The calculator will only provide accurate results for U.S. Citizens and permanent residents living in the United States.  It is meant to be used as a tool for prospective students only.
