Financial Aid Estimator

When you open the Estimated Family Contribution Calculator below, you will be redirected to a website that is not affiliated with Purchase College. Thoroughly read the caveats before you complete the form. “Estimated School Costs” can be found at the Tuition And Costs page of the Student Accounts web page.

NOTE: The Estimated Family Contribution Calculator does not guarantee a financial aid award from Purchase College and it does not indicate the amount that the student and/or parent will have to pay the College. It is simply meant to provide an estimate of the student’s/parents’ ability to pay for higher education and the estimated Pell Grant that the student may be eligible to receive based on the information submitted.

If the student is not eligible for a Pell Grant and you can approximate the student’s annual college costs, this “calculator” will give you an idea as to the family’s financial need. To receive actual federal and state financial assistance, the student MUST complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the appropriate academic year.
