Welcome

Welcome to PNCA'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 find out your estimated eligibility for financial aid and an approximation of your out-of-pocket expenses.

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

Even if you're 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.

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. Your "net price" is the difference between your cost of attendance and the aid that is available to you.

The Net Price Calculator provides an approximation of what a new first-year, undergraduate student can expect to pay to attend Pacific Northwest College of Art. It is not intended for use by transfer, graduate, readmitted, continuing, international or part-time students, who should instead contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.

This calculator is not an official application for financial aid and is not a substitute for applying for financial aid. The student must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine eligibility for federal student aid funds.

The results provided here are only an estimate and do not guarantee the actual financial aid you will receive. The estimated award is subject to the accuracy of the information you provide, may change if financial or other family characteristics change, and does not incorporate any special circumstances, which are reviewed when you officially apply for aid.
