Net Price Calculator

We are excited for you to explore the affordability and value of a St. Cloud State University (SCSU) experience!

The Net Price Calculator (NPC) uses information that you provide about your family and finances in order to calculate an estimate of financial aid for you. To have the most accurate estimate, it is helpful to have recent tax forms or financial statements on hand.

The financial aid estimate may include federal grants and loans, Minnesota grant (eligibility requirements), and scholarships from SCSU. Estimates of these financial aid sources are subtracted from the total SCSU cost of attendance to provide you with an estimated "net price."


  • This is not an application for admission or financial aid. You will need to complete both the SCSU admission application (undergraduate or graduate) and apply for financial aid.
  • The NPC only provides an estimate of your financial aid eligibility and annual costs. Your actual financial aid offer and expenses may differ from what you see here.
  • Please direct any questions regarding the financial aid estimate to the SCSU Financial Aid Office at (320) 308-2047 or
