Welcome to the Connecticut College Student Aid Estimator!

Connecticut College is pleased to provide families with a tool to help determine estimated eligibility for need-based financial aid and the net price.

We encourage you to visit our web site to understand our funding policies and how aid is awarded. In addition, please consider the following:

  • Connecticut College does not offer merit or athletic aid. All awards are based on need.
  • This tool is intended for U.S. citizens and permanent residents only.
  • This tool is currently designed to assist prospective first-year students.
  • The resulting information is based on data that you have provided. It is designed to be used as a planning tool to demonstrate the affordability of Connecticut College.
  • Financial Aid Services will determine an award after a review of the FAFSA, CSS Profile, and supporting documentation such as federal tax returns and W2 statements from parents and students. The College uses a different approach for siblings enrolled in a community college, state college or enrolled less than full time. This could result in a higher contribution than demonstrated on this calculator.
  • This tool is also useful for future planning especially if you will have a change in dependents enrolled in an undergraduate program or expect income or assets to increase or decrease over the student's four year enrollment.
  • The Expected Family Contribution will vary among colleges based on institutional policies and professional judgment.
  • You are encouraged to communicate in writing any special circumstances directly to Financial Aid Services at the time of your application. They are treated on a case-by-case basis and subject to availability of funding.
  • Home equity and retirement reported on the CSS Profile may be considered in exceptional circumstances, and therefore your award may be different than estimated here.

Features of this calculator:
  • Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) amounts for federal, state, and Connecticut College need-based aid.
  • Estimated financial aid package components
  • Printable reports

15The calculator will take approximately 15-30 minutes to complete.

Having the following items will help you complete this process:

  • 2012 Income Tax Return for parent(s) and student
  • Earnings statements (W2 forms, recent paycheck stubs)
  • Bank statements

If you do not have the above information available, estimates are acceptable and recommended. The more accurate your information, the better the estimate will be.

I accept the Terms of Use agreement.
