Additional Financial Aid Resources/Tools

Financial Aid Net Price Calculator Home

The net price calculator is a tool to get an estimate of what it may cost to attend Prairie State College each year. The information from the calculator is not a guarantee of aid and is limited by the accuracy of information put in and the limited number of factors the calculator considers. The actual net price for students can vary significantly based on academic eligibility for merit awards and income eligibility for need-based awards. Families must still file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, to be eligible for financial aid. For more information on applying for Federal student aid, visit http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/.

Please contact the PSC financial aid office to help in both the search for financial aid and the application process.
