Net Price Calculator

The Net Price Calculator provides full-time, first-year students with a general estimate of how much financial aid they might be eligible to receive.

The cost of attending college includes more than just tuition and fees. 

Your costs can also include other expenses such as room and board, books and supplies, transportation and personal expenses. The Net Price Calculator will help you plan and prepare, and give you a better understanding of the estimated cost of attending the College of Charleston.

We take these expenses into account in our Net Price Calculator as well as other factors such as family, location, personal finances and potential scholarships and grants you may receive, to provide you with a personalized estimate of the net price of attending the College of Charleston.

While the Net Price Calculator applies only to first-year, full-time students, transfer students, and continuing and graduate students can learn more about expected costs by visiting the Tuition & Fees page.

Estimating Costs

Please note that the data you provide, as well as your estimated results, are not stored or shared by the College of Charleston for any other purpose.

The projected financial aid awards do not represent a final determination of aid, an actual offer of financial assistance or a final net price. It is an estimate based on cost of attendance and financial aid provided to students in the previous year. 

The cost of attendance and financial aid availability are subject to change each year. While your need-based resources are contingent upon available funds, the calculator results are a reasonable estimate of what your family can expect to receive at the College of Charleston. 

Financial aid funding provided in the calculation shall not be binding of the Secretary of Education, College of Charleston or the State of South Carolina.

Applying for Financial Aid

Your actual final award - not the estimate provided by the calculator - will be based on the results of your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and other applicable data. In order to be eligible for, and receive actual financial aid, you must complete the FAFSA. Visit our FAFSA page for more information on applying for Federal student aid.
