Welcome to the Net Price Calculator

Welcome to the University of Kentucky’s Net Price Calculator! This tool will calculate an ESTIMATE of the general types and amount of financial aid you might expect to receive for your freshman year when you enroll full-time at the University of Kentucky and will also help you estimate your out-of-pocket expenses for the 9 months of the academic year (fall and spring semesters). The calculator results are based on 2015-2016 academic year costs and funding and are subject to change with federal, state, or institutional policy or funding revisions.

Even if you're not going to 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 the costs to attend the University of Kentucky 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.

This calculator is not able to take into consideration special circumstances. If your situation is unusual, you may want to contact a financial aid counselor at the UK financial aid office at 859-257-3172 to determine if your circumstances could result in a different financial aid estimate.

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.

  • 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 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. 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 will make the final determination of 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, pay stubs and bank/investment statements on hand before you begin.
