HOW MUCH WILL COLLEGE REALLY COST?

It is important to review the estimated cost of attendance to better understand the expenses you can expect to encounter throughout your studies. Then you’re going to want to use the very popular Net Price Calculator to factor in scholarships and aid. We are pleased to provide these tools to assist you in your college search.

Cost of Attendance

College expensescan be categorized into direct costs (charged directly by the institution such as tuition, fees, room and board) and indirect costs (travel, books, personal expenses, etc.). Both types of expenses are used to calculate student eligibility for financial aid. The amount of money needed to attend college is the college budget. If the college budget is greater than a student’s family contribution, the difference is that student’s financial need.

Net Price Calculator

Let’sto determine the amount you are likely to pay if you were to attend Saint Peter’s University. It will be helpful to have your parents’ financial records in hand when you complete the calculator, and to know your GPA and test scores. It generally takes about 10 minutes to answer all of the questions.
