About the Financial Aid Net Price Calculator
In accordance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), each postsecondary institution that participates in Title IV federal student aid programs must post a net price calculator on its website that uses institutional data to provide estimated net price information to current and prospective students and their families based on a student’s individual circumstances.
The Net Price Calculator only applies to full-time undergraduate students seeking their first undergraduate degree or certificate.
The Net Price Calculator only includes gift aid such as grants, scholarships, and Florida Bright Futures - it does NOT consider:
- Florida Prepaid Tuition Plans or other college-investment/savings plans
- Self-help programs such as Federal Work Study or Loans
- Other third party awards such as private scholarships, employer tuition assistance, veterans affairs benefits, etcetera.
In addition, it is important to understand the following:
- The Net Price Calculator is intended to estimate costs for undergraduate students seeking their first undergraduate degree.
- Estimated total price of attendance is calculated for Fall and Spring semesters only.
- The Net Price Calculator calculations are performed off prior award year data.
- Each student’s situation is unique; therefore, there is no way to fully estimate the impact of financial aid for a student within the Net Price Calculator.
The estimates produced by the calculator do not represent a final determination, or actual award, of financial assistance or a final net price; they are only estimates based on price of attendance and financial aid provided to students during the prior aid year. Price of attendance and financial aid availability changes year to year. These estimates shall not be binding on the Secretary of Education, the institution of higher education, or the State.
Not all students receive financial aid. During the prior aid year, approximately 70% of our full-time students enrolling for college for the first time received grant/scholarship aid. Students may also be eligible for student loans and work-study. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to determine their eligibility for Federal financial aid, including Federal grants, loans, or work-study assistance.
