Saint Mary's College has partnered with the College Board to create this calculator for you and your family. You can use this calculator to learn about your potential eligibility for financial aid, estimate your out-of-pocket expenses, or create "what-if" scenarios based on expected income and expenses. We hope this calculator takes some of the mystery out of your college search and helps you to make informed decisions about affordability. Note that this calculator is not intended to be used by current Saint Mary's students to estimate their future aid eligibility.
Here's what to expect:
- It should take you no more than 20 minutes to complete.
- You'll answer a few basic questions about your academics, and then provide information about your family's finances. You'll want to have recent tax forms or pay stubs on hand.
- You can sign in with your College Board user name and password, or use the calculator as a guest without signing in. If you sign in, you'll be able to save your information. Then if you want to consider other colleges you can explore their costs without having to enter all your information again.
- Note that special circumstances are considered by the financial aid office on a case-by-case basis. If your situation is unusual, you should contact the financial aid office after you are admitted.
How does it work?
- The calculator uses the facts you provide to create an estimate of the amount of grants, scholarships, and other financial aid that is likely to be available to you at Saint Mary's. Your "net price" is the difference between your total financial assistance and the cost of attending Saint Mary's.
- The results are only as reliable as the data you provide, so take a few minutes now to gather those tax forms, pay stubs and other financial documents.
As you use the calculator, please remember:
- This is not an application for admission or financial aid.
- The results will only be as reliable as the data you provide.
- The net price calculator will only give you an estimate of your net price and aid eligibility. None of the awards are guaranteed.
- You must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the CSS PROFILE before March 1 of the year you plan to attend college.
