Net Price

Net price is the amount of money you need to come up with, through your own funds, loans, or a payment plan, to pay for college. To determine net price you need to subtract your gift aid (like scholarships and grants) from your school-determined cost of attendance. Knowing the net price for each potential school can help you determine the best financial fit.
