Welcome to the Net Price Calculator

Please note this calculator is for estimates only and the actual award package will vary depending upon the time of year, regulatory and institutional policy changes, availability of funds, actual test scores and academic information, as well as verifiable financial information.

  • 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.

Welcome to Platt College’s Net Price Calculator.  This tool will help you estimate your eligibility for financial aid and your out-of pocket expenses.  Best of all, it demonstrates just how affordable a Platt College education can be.  If you are not already familiar with Platt College’s mission, values, and vision, we encourage you to visit our website to learn more about our programs, how we value undergraduate education and student success, and to see what makes the Platt Difference. 

This calculator will provide a preliminary estimate of federal and institutional aid eligibility. The estimates are based on the award policies of the 2011-2012 academic year and are subject to change.  The estimator is meant to be used as a tool for prospective students.  It will not provide returning students with an accurate estimate of their parental contribution. As you proceed, please keep in mind, this calculator provides an estimate of need-based aid eligibility.  Platt College does not offer merit based or athletic awards.  The estimate you receive is only as reliable as the data you enter.  

Even if you’re not going to college in the near future, Platt College’s net price calculator will still be helpful.  Potential students and even 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. 

The calculator will take approximately 8 minutes to complete.

To help you complete this process, it would be helpful to have the items listed below:

  • Student and Parent most recent Income Tax Returns
  • Earnings statements (W2 forms, recent paycheck stubs)
  • Bank statements
  • Student academic information
    • Grade Point Average
    • Standardized test scores if available (SAT/ACT)
    • High School Class Rank
  • Dollar amounts of any scholarships you may be receiving from outside sources

If you don't have this information available, estimates are perfectly acceptable.
