Cost of College Calculator
Your education in numbers.
WHAT COLLEGE WILL REALLY COST YOU
Use this tool to see how much college will really cost you. We account for inflation rate over time, your food costs (in increments of pizza, obviously), and how you'll pay—or not pay—for your textbooks. If you enter your family's income, we'll also let you know your family's "estimated financial need"; this is the number that schools and the government use to calculate how much dough they'll fork over for your education in the form of financial aid. If you still expect to pay for most of the cost with loans, we've got a debt—er, loan interest—calculator on the next page.
Just enter some fancy shmancy numbers and words, click CALCULATE, and you’re off.
