MyinTuition Quick College Cost Estimator

The Quick College Cost Estimator provides a quick estimate based on six questions. For a more in-depth review and to determine Pell eligibility you will need to use the Net Price Calculator.

Net Price Calculator

The Net Price Calculator is a tool designed by the College Board to help you assess what your eligibility for financial aid might be and estimate your out-of-pocket expenses. The Net Price Calculator will give you an estimate of your net cost and aid eligibility, but your ultimate financial aid package will be determined by the MIT financial aid office. 

Completing the calculator should take no more than 20 minutes of your time. You will need to answer some basic questions about your family’s financial situation, so it might be helpful to have recent tax forms or pay stubs on hand before you begin.

Things to note

Both tools are designed for first-time, full-time students. They will not be accurate for international students or federally independent students.

Results may be less accurate for families who are divorced or separated, and families who have ownership in a business. Special circumstances are considered on a case-by-case basis once you apply for financial aid.

Other financial aid tools, resources, and calculators can be found on the College Board’s Big Future website.
