Net Price Calculator

Use the Net Price Calculator to understand what you might pay
You may be surprised to know that nationwide — for students attending private, four-year colleges — the average family can pay much less than the college’s published price. The Net Price Calculator is the ideal tool to help full-time, incoming first-year students estimate what the annual cost* would be to attend Quinnipiac.

Net Price Calculator

*In assessing a family's Expected Family Contribution (EFC), the university requires just the FAFSA form. Families that know their federal EFC can enter these figures into the calculator when prompted. For those who have not yet completed the FAFSA, you will need to have estimated income, tax and asset data available for the calculator to provide you with an estimation of your eligibility for grants, scholarships, loans and work-study programs.

It is important to note that the Net Price Calculator is only designed to provide estimates for full-time, first-year undergraduate students.

The receipt of additional assistance such as athletic scholarships, employee benefits, Tuition Exchange grants, veterans benefits, outside scholarships, etc., may affect the estimated aid being calculated. Please contact our office if you qualify for aid outside of the resources being provided in the calculator.

Complete your Entrance Counseling and Master Promissory Note (MPN) online for federal loans

Students who accept a federal student loan for the first time are required to complete the Entrance Counseling session and also sign a Master Promissory Note. These two tasks must be completed before the loan proceeds can be disbursed to the school on the student’s behalf. This process takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and can be accessed 24 hours a day at the Federal Student Aid government website, studentaid.gov

Returning borrowers are required to complete an annual Informed Borrowing Confirmation. This requirement can also be completed at the Federal Student Aid website, studentaid.gov
