Net Price Calculator
Estimate Your Net Cost of Attendance
(Cost of Attendance minus Need-Based Financial Aid)
The NET PRICE CALCULATOR is a tool which estimates need-based financial aid eligibility and the net cost for a student attending a California State University. After entering your information, you can view an estimate of your eligibility for grants and need-based loans at Chico State.
The Net Price Calculator is not an actual application for financial aid. To receive an official award of financial aid from Chico State, you MUST complete the application process beginning with the submission of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available January 1 and must be submitted no later than March 2 in order to obtain the most grant money possible.
Your individual net cost may be lower depending on other sources of aid available such as unsubsidized loans, or Parent PLUS loans, or scholarships. Also, your costs may be higher depending on other financial factors such as assets and untaxed income that may affect your expected family contribution. These and other variables are not included in this calculator but are included in the FAFSA.
