How Aid Works

Net Price Calculator

  • Calculations are based on the parameters for a freshman entering Stanford in fall 2015.
  • Results are dependent on the accuracy and completeness of the information entered and intended to provide only a general guide to your eligibility for financial aid.
  • Any award is not guaranteed by Stanford and is meant to be an indication of the aid you may be eligible to receive.  Stanford’s Financial Aid Office is the final authority for determining the family contribution and any financial aid award.
  • This is not an application for financial aid.  Your information will not be retained or transmitted to Stanford in any way.
