UW Flexible Option provides this Net Price Calculator as a tool to assist in early financial planning for college. The calculator is an approximation of federal aid eligibility for students that plan to attend UW Flexible Option. This is for your information only and it is not an application for financial aid.*
Many factors are considered when awarding financial aid to students including, but not limited to: deadlines, federal funding levels, and family financial circumstances. This calculator provides an estimate and it may not incorporate all possible awarding considerations. For example, any scholarships you may receive are not factored into this calculation or funding may become exhausted at certain times of the year. These factors, and others, could impact the cost of your education.
If you have completed the current year’s FAFSA, input your information into the Net Price Calculator. If you have already filed the FAFSA but don’t remember your EFC, you can look it up at fafsa.gov. You will need your Social Security Number and your FSA ID username and password to retrieve your FAFSA information. After logging on, select “View and Print your Student Aid Report” in the right hand column.
If you wish to estimate your EFC prior to completing a FAFSA, you can use the College Board EFC Calculator.
The percent of students enrolled in UW Flexible Option degree programs that received grant aid during the 2021-22 aid year was 28%.
*You can apply for aid by filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at fafsa.gov.
Net Price Calculator
This calculator provides an unofficial estimate of your financial aid eligibility. It does not represent a final determination, or actual award. These estimates are based on the cost of attendance and financial aid provided to students in 2015-16. The use of this calculator does not constitute an actual application for financial aid. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and be admitted to UW Flexible Option in order to be eligible for, and receive, an actual financial aid award that includes grant or loans. For more information on applying for federal student aid, go to http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/.
Awards shown assume funding is available in all programs at the time eligibility is determined. However, many programs have limited funding and will not be offered once funds have been exhausted. Typically, the Federal Pell Grant and Federal Direct Loan programs do not run out of funds.
