Net Price


 

Net price is the average yearly price actually charged to undergraduates after subtracting any student financial aid they may receive. Net price moves beyond an institution's published "sticker price" and provides students and families with an idea of how much it might really cost them to attend an institution.

Net price varies by student family income and type of institution attended.

Postsecondary institutions in Minnesota and across the nation who are eligible to participate in a federal financial aid program are required to have a net price calculator on their institution's website.

To find the college's net price calculator go to the Net Price Calculator Center.
