Comparing Costs

As you begin to receive financial aid packages from the colleges you’ve been accepted to, it’s important to carefully review your awards so you know you’re making the best decision both academically and financially.

One of the biggest mistakes students make when reviewing their award letters is assuming that the biggest aid package is the best. Financial aid eligibility varies from school to school, so it helps to compare your awards and costs by organizing the information into a worksheet. Here’s an example:

 

Cost of Attendance

Grants/Scholarships

College A

1. Determine the cost of attendance

This includes tuition and fees, room and board, books, supplies, transportation and miscellaneous expenses. If cost of attendance is not listed on your award letter or online, reach out to the college’s financial aid office to find out.

2. Deduct your grants/scholarships

Grants and scholarships do not have to be paid back, so subtract the amount of grants/scholarships a college offered you from the college’s cost of attendance. The remaining amount is your net price, or out-of-pocket expense. Work Study awards are generally not factored into this format, since students are paid hourly and often use that income for miscellaneous expenses.

3. Consider your student loans

If you plan to borrow student loans, subtract the student loans you’ve been offered in your aid package from the net price. That will give you your bottom line net cost.

4. Compare net costs

When choosing where to go to college, there’s more to consider than just cost — but knowing the affordability of each school can help you make an informed decision.

Please note: Some schools will add a PLUS/Parent Loan to your financial aid package: This is not awarded by the college  it is a credit-based loan that your parent will need to borrow in his/her name. Your parent may apply for the PLUS/Parent Loan to be used at most all schools.
