The Net Price Calculator is a tool that students can use to estimate their “net price” to attend a particular college or university.
Net price is the difference between the “sticker” price (full cost) to attend a specific college, minus any grants and scholarships for which students may be eligible. Sticker price includes direct charges (tuition and fees, room and board) and indirect costs (books and supplies, transportation, and personal expenses).

All students in elementary-through-high school should be identifying the types of scholarships that they will be applying for and set up dates and folders to begin gathering their information so that they are ready to apply when the time comes. Far too many students and parents do not begin their scholarship research until students are in the 12th grade and much aid is wasted due to missed deadlines! Consider utilizing the summer to write and file away your many essays. Work with your teachers during the school year to fine-tune your essays (Huron teachers work with students Spring of 11th grade) and have them ready to go when the scholarship dates approach.
