Cost of Attendance

Net Price Calculator

Our Net Price Calculator allows prospective and current students to calculate an estimated net price at an institution using the following basic formula: Price of attendance minus grant aid.

Based on the information entered, an average net price of attendance is generated based on what similar students paid in the 2018-2019 award year.

The estimates included within the net price calculator apply to full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students only. Students enrolled do not meet these criteria of a first-time degree/certificate –seeking undergraduate student because students must enter with transfer credits.

Therefore students are never enrolled as a first-time degree seeking student. Therefore the estimates generated by the template 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 specific award year. Actual attendance cost may be different based on a variety of factors and circumstances not incorporated within the Net Price Calculator. Results calculated are simply non-binding estimates of attendance costs.

The estimates shall not be binding on the Secretary of Education, Southside College of Health Sciences or other government related agencies and activities.

All students must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for federal and need-based financial aid. You can do so at
