It is important to understand the "real" price tag of a college - that is, what you and your parents will have to pay. This calculator helps you compare financial aid award letters from different schools. It not only analyzes how much you and your parents will need to contribute toward your education, but also how much the monthly payments are for various loan packages.
This calculation assumes that:
* You have the same financial aid package for all years of school
* Interest on Stafford and Private loans is not paid during school
* Parents begin payment of PLUS loans immediately after disbursement
