Welcome to the Net Price Calculator

Welcome to the Union College Net Price Calculator.  This calculator has been designed to provide you with an early estimate of your eligibility for both merit and need-based financial aid.  Upon completion of the information requested, which includes your family’s financial information along with your academic profile, you will be presented with a sample financial aid award.  When reviewing the sample award, please note the following:

  • The award is representative of one a student would receive if they are admitted to the College for the 2019/2020 academic year.
  • This is not a guaranteed financial aid offer and all official financial aid awards are determined by the financial aid office upon receipt of the required aid applications.
  • The results provided by this calculator are dependent upon the accuracy and completeness of the information entered and is intended to provide only a general guide of your potential eligibility for financial aid.
  • This does not replace the financial aid application requirements which include completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at and the CSS PROFILE at  for need-based aid consideration.
  • This tool is not designed to calculate contributions for students whose biological parents are separated or divorced.  In these cases, Union requires completion of the noncustodial profile as part of the aid application requirements and determines both a custodial and non-custodial parental contribution.  You can use the calculator to estimate an expected contribution for each parent by going through the calculation twice. 
  • The calculator will only provide accurate results for U.S. citizens and Permanent Residents living in the United States.

Financial aid staff is available to answer any questions regarding the net price calculator or general questions with regard to financial aid. All technical questions regarding the net price calculator should be directed to the College Board.

  • 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.

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.
