Net Price Calculator
Here to Help You Plan
For most Laurentians, the cost of attendance at St. Lawrence is not the cost they pay. For first-year, undergraduate students, the Net Price Calculator can give you an early approximation of what you can expect to pay.
This anonymous Net Price Calculator tool helps families plan for educational costs by providing an estimated financial aid package.
The calculator is designed for use by undergraduate students who are U.S. citizens and all monetary data must be reported in U.S. dollars. Most colleges and universities employ a different formula to determine eligibility for students from outside the U.S. that is not available with this calculator.
The package reflects the cost of attendance minus any scholarship or grant aid based on the 2022-2023 awarding rules. It is important to note that this tool is not yet updated with the changes that will be forthcoming on the 2024-2025 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and results may vary.
If the amount you're expected to contribute is less than the cost of this school, the difference is your "financial need" for one academic year only. Students must re-apply for financial assistance each year using the FAFSA.
The Net Price Calculator is a tool that estimates your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) for covering the cost of a college education.
These results are only an estimate—individual financial circumstances change all the time, and this tool doesn’t take a holistic approach to your unique situation.
The Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) is used to estimate your financial need.
While your EFC will stay relatively the same depending on the school you look at, your financial need will not. To determine your financial need, subtract your EFC from the cost of attendance. Once we determine your financial need, our team will work with you to make sure the cost of a St. Lawrence education is affordable and accessible.
To use the Net Price Calculator, all you need are 15 minutes, your most recent tax return, W2s, and student academic information—including GPA, school CEEB code, and standardized test scores. With these resources, you can calculate your estimated EFC now!
If you are a graduate, transfer, readmitted, continuing, international or part-time student, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
We’ll work with you directly to address your unique circumstances and help you plan for the cost of a St. Lawrence education in the most responsible and affordable way possible.
