Net Price / Award Calculator



The estimate provided here is based upon 2013-2014 costs, awarding rules, and federal/state appropriations. This estimate is dependent upon the accuracy of financial information that was used to calculate an expected family contribution (EFC). Future costs and estimated aid are subject to change. Reductions in funding or changes in aid rules could impact future award eligibility.

This Net Price Calculator gives you an estimate of your cost of attendance and net price for one academic year.

You must complete the financial aid process to determine your actual contribution towards college expenses.

Keep in mind this is not a financial aid application. The data provided and calculator results are not stored by UW-Madison. To receive actual financial aid awards, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be submitted each year of attendance.

Where to find more information

This calculator provides an unofficial estimate of your financial aid eligibility. The use of this calculator does not constitute an actual application for financial aid. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and be admitted to UW-Madison in order to be eligible for, and receive, an actual financial aid award that includes grant, loan, or work-study assistance. For more information on applying for Federal student aid, go to http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/.

Awards shown assume funding is available in all programs at the time eligibility is determined. However, many programs have limited funding and will not be offered once funds have been exhausted. Typically, the Federal Pell Grant and Federal Direct Loan programs do not run out of funds. You are encouraged to submit the FAFSA as soon as possible after January 1 each year.
