Welcome to the Net Price Calculator for Wabash College! We're happy you are beginning to explore how to pay for your college education. Using the net price calculator, you can estimate your eligibility for financial aid. Rather than shy away from applying to colleges that seem to be out of your price range, results from the net price calculator will begin to show you how affordable a high quality education like the one you would receive at Wabash College might be.
Colleges have different resources and financial aid policies, so your "net price" will vary from institution to institution. Also, special circumstances are 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 have applied. The results of this calculator may not be accurate if your parents are divorced or separated or if you have other unusual circumstances.
The Net Price calculator uses very basic information and historical averages to determine approximate eligibility for some merit-based scholarships and need-based assistance. Therefore, there are significant limitations to what this process can accomplish for you. Wabash recognizes that students are individuals and they will look beyond the numbers when they evaluate your situation. Wabash strongly encourages you to complete the Wabash College Early Estimate process in order to get a more accurate, individualized assessment of your potential eligibility for merit-based scholarships, need-based financial aid, and financing options.
When you're ready to begin using the Net Price Calculator, 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.
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:
- 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. The financial aid office has the final word on your financial aid award.
- You must complete the CSS/PROFILE Application and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) between January 1 and February 15 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 or pay stubs on hand before you begin.
