Aid Calculator

The University of Arkansas-Fayetteville is pleased to provide this Net Price Calculator software as a guide, offered to English and Spanish speaking families, to aid in early financial planning for college. This calculator will provide a preliminary, non-binding estimate* of federal, state and institutional aid eligibility based on federal methodology. It was created to help families gauge what financial aid the student may be awarded and to make arrangements to cover the cost of college attendance.

The calculator is only intended for use by U.S. citizens or permanent residents who will be pursuing undergraduate degrees and who will be enrolled at least half time. If you are an international student, please visit the Office of International Studies and Scholars website at . This calculator does not apply to graduate/professional students.

These awards may vary among colleges according to their own institutional policies. Please note this calculator is for estimates only and the actual award package will vary depending on time of year, regulatory changes, and availability of funds. The University of Arkansas, Office of Financial Aid will make the final determination for the award package.

*Financial aid eligibility may change each year due to the federal, state and institutional regulations. This estimate is calculated using current regulations and/or policies. Work Study funding is not guaranteed. Work Study will only be awarded to eligible students if funding allows. The PLUS Loan option is available to help families cover both their EFC (Expected Family Contribution) and any "gap" not covered by financial aid. State aid determination is made by the Arkansas Department of Higher Education. Please consult for more information regarding state aid programs including the new Arkansas Academic Challenge Scholarship (funded by the lottery). Any state (or outside) aid received may alter the estimate provided by the calculator.
