Net Price Calculator

The Net Price Calculator helps students explore options for financing their college education in advance of receiving an actual offer of financial aid. The estimates are based on a single academic year (fall and spring terms) of full-time attendance. The Net Price Calculator is not an application for financial aid or a guarantee of what you will receive. You will still need to apply for financial aid.

Cost of Attendance (COA) figures are based on selections of residency status for tuition purposes, home campus, degree program and housing plan. Please note these estimates include direct expenses UW-Green Bay charges students and other indirect living expenses that will not appear on an institutional bill.

You will need to enter an approximate Expected Family Contribution (EFC) along with your academic level and dependency status to receive an estimate of federal and state aid eligibility. We provide instructions for estimating your EFC through the College Board below. Please note many factors are considered when offering financial aid to students, including (but not limited to): deadlines, funding levels and family financial circumstances. Future costs and estimated aid are subject to change. Reductions in funding or changes in aid rules could impact future award eligibility. This calculator does not incorporate all possible sources of funding (e.g., Scholarships, Veteran Benefits)

1 Expected Family Contribution (EFC)

A key component to determining aid is the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) which is a measurement of your family’s financial strength. Each year that you wish to be considered for financial aid, your family will complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). That form, once processed by the federal government, will calculate your EFC. The College Board EFC Calculator provides a preliminary estimate of what that EFC might be. Again, it is an estimate and will vary based on the federal formula and the accuracy of the data you provide.

Hints for using the College Board BigFuture EFC Calculator:

  1. Click Get Stared to navigate through the EFC calculation.
  2. Choose Federal Methodology as the Formula.
  3. Have basic income and asset information on hand before you begin.
  4. Although you can save your data by creating a account, no information is submitted to UW-Green Bay or the Department of Education.

2 Calculate Your Estimates

Now that you have your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), update your Student Profile in the calculator below and generate an estimate of your net college costs. Remember, this is an estimate and not your actual Financial Aid offer. You will still need to apply for financial aid.

  1. Enter your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) in the Approximate EFC field.
    Don't enter a value of 0 (zero) unless the College Board EFC estimate in step one gives you a 0 (zero) EFC value.
  2. Verify the remaining information in the student profile. Click Calculate.
  3. Scroll down to the estimate results to see your estimated cost of attendance, need, grants, scholarships and other aid.

Estimate Disclaimer

The aid estimate is not binding on the Department of Education, the school, or the state. 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-Green Bay in order to be eligible for, and receive, an actual financial aid offer that may include grant, loan or work study assistance. For more information on applying for Federal student aid, go to

In 2021-2022, 74% of full-time, first-time students entering college at UW-Green Bay received grant/scholarship aid. You are encouraged to submit the FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1 each year.

Aid offers 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.
