Net Price Calculator

The UW-Green Bay Net Price Calculator can't guarantee how much aid or what type you might receive. But it can be a good starting point for early financial planning for college. Use it to estimate your costs of attending college, financial need, grants, scholarships and other aid for which you may be eligible. You will still need to apply for financial aid.

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.

The estimate provided here is based upon 2021-22 costs, awarding rules and federal / state appropriations.

Future costs and estimated aid are subject to change. Reductions in funding or changes in aid rules could impact future award eligibility. Additional funding sources may be available to veterans or dependents of veterans. Contact the UW-Green Bay Veterans Services representative at 920-465-2065.

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

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

What is the Net Price Calculator?

UW-Green Bay provides this Net Price Calculator as a tool for early financial planning for college. The calculator is an approximation of federal and state aid eligibility for undergraduate students planning to attend UW-Green Bay. It isn't an actual award of financial assistance. It's purely informational. Use this for a rough guess when you're planning how to pay for college.

Many factors are considered when offering financial aid to students including, but not limited to: deadlines, federal and state funding levels and family financial circumstances. This calculator provides an estimate and it may not incorporate all possible offering considerations. For example, scholarships that a student receives are not factored into this tool; however, these funds typically impact a student’s calculated financial need.

Estimate Disclaimer

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 2019-2020, 69% 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.
