    The Net Price Calculator is a tool that helps first time, full time students determine what he/she will pay in a single academic year AFTER subtracting scholarships and grants.  This calculator estimates the possible need-based aid the student may be eligible for after filing the FAFSA as well as estimated merit based scholarships from the college.

    verification forms

    The Department of Education selects about 30% of all FAFSA files for a process called verification, which requires the school to collect documentation in order to check the accuracy of the FAFSA information.  This process ensures that eligible students receive all the financial aid to which they are entitled and prevents ineligible students from receiving financial aid to which they are not entitled.
