Net Price Calculator
The Net Price Calculator is a tool designed to help students estimate what it may cost to attend any of the Maricopa Community Colleges or Skill Centers annually. This broad estimate is based on the cost of attendance and the financial aid that was provided to full-time, first-time degree/certificate seeking undergraduate students and does not represent an actual award. Submission of the FAFSA is the only way to obtain a true and accurate determination of eligibility. Actual net price can vary significantly based on student eligibility.
