Net Price Calculator

Welcome to PAFA’s Net Price Calculator. This is a federally-mandated calculator that the U.S. Department of Education hopes will assist prospective first-time, full-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students in determining an estimated net cost of attendance. It is not intended for undergraduate transfer or graduate students.

Using both student-entered and institution-provided data, the Net Price Calculator allows prospective students and their families to calculate an estimated net price at PAFA using the following basic formula: Price of attendance minus grant aid. An average net price of attendance is generated based on what similar students paid in 2009-2010 (the most current year available).

Disclaimer: Please read before proceeding.

By clicking below, you acknowledge that:

  • This calculator is intended for incoming full-time, first year Certificate and BFA students who apply by the posted application deadline. 
  • This calculator provides only a rough approximation of financial aid (and even then, only if accurate data is entered into the calculator).
  • Not all students will qualify for all of the aid that the calculator indicates may be available.
  • The calculator is not designed to replace the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or a complete financial aid award package provided by a college financial aid office.
  • Families who have high incomes or significant assets will not receive as accurate an estimate of financial aid eligibility.

The estimates generated by the Net Price Calculator do not represent a final determination, or actual award, of financial assistance or a final net price; they are only estimates based on price of attendance and financial aid provided to students in a given year. The estimates shall not be binding on the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.

 

Please read. This calculator is intended to provide estimated net price information (defined as estimated cost of attendance — including tuition and required fees, books and supplies, room and board (meals), and other related expenses — minus estimated grant and scholarship aid) to current and prospective students and their families based on what similar students paid in a previous year.

By clicking below, I acknowledge that the estimate provided using this calculator does not represent a final determination, or actual award, of financial assistance, or a final net price; it is an estimate based on cost of attendance and financial aid provided to students in a previous year. Cost of attendance and financial aid availability change year to year. The estimates shall not be binding on the Secretary of Education, the institution of higher education, or the State.

Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to be eligible for, and receive, an actual financial aid award that includes Federal grant, loan, or work-study assistance. For more information on applying for Federal student aid, go to http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/
