NET PRICE CALCULATOR (NPC) I have some exciting news! Syracuse University’s Net Price Calculator (NPC) is now available at several online locations on the SU Admission and FA websites.
As you know, federal law requires that all colleges/universities must have a Net Price Calculator available by October 1. Syracuse University’s NPC became live August 1, months in advance, to accommodate our prospective freshmen to help them with their college search.
We are utilizing the College Board’s Net Price Calculator product and we have been working closely with them throughout the past year to customize our calculator for Syracuse University. In addition to introducing families to the financial aid process, it has been designed to help tell the SU story.
The NPC will help families estimate their eligibility for financial aid and out of pocket expenses. It is a great planning tool, and provides an early indication of how much, and what types of financial aid a family may be eligible to receive at SU.
We are able to calculate eligibility for financial aid that reflects our institutional decision towards meeting full need using 2011-12 packaging policies. This includes Syracuse University Grant as well as other state and federal grants, federal loans, and work study. However, eligibility of merit scholarships is not determined by the calculator.
Our immediate focus and requirement of the federal regulations is to assist prospective students who are interested in SU as fulltime undergraduates and will be entering as freshmen.
