Estimating Your Financial Aid Eligibility
Carnegie Mellon provides two options for high school seniors and their families to receive an estimate of their financial aid eligibility. The Federal Net Price Calculator and Financial Aid Estimator are intended for U.S. citizens, eligible non-citizens and permanent residents who plan on pursuing a full-time undergraduate degree.
The Federal Net Price Calculator and Financial Aid Estimator provide estimates only. Actual financial aid awards may vary depending on institutional policy changes, official academic information and verified family financial information.
Federal Net Price Calculator
The Federal Net Price Calculator is an anonymous tool and provides a very general sense of a Carnegie Mellon education. The federal calculator asks for household size, number in college and total household income. The federal calculator does not include some of the information normally requested in our financial aid application or Financial Aid Estimator.
The Federal Net Price Calculator is not an official application for financial aid. The federal calculator enables prospective students and their families to determine an estimate of the net cost to attend Carnegie Mellon. It doesn’t represent an actual award of financial aid or a final net price. It’s an estimate based upon cost of attendance and financial aid provided to students in the most recent academic year.
