We are excited to hear that you are interested in attending Elms College! As you work on submitting your admissions application and materials here, you should also start working on completing the 2021-2022 FAFSA here. Don’t forget to add Elms College’s school code: 002140. You can also use the myStudentAid app to complete the FAFSA on an iOS or Android device.
In the meantime, we understand that finances play an important role for families when students are choosing a school. That is why Elms College is pleased to present our Net Price Calculator to help you learn about the different financial aid offers you may be eligible to receive at our institution. While the Net Price Calculator is an estimate and is not an offer of financial aid, be sure to go through each step of the calculator and to answer each question accurately in order to get the closest results. Our Net Price Calculator is neither an application for admission to Elms College nor a financial aid application. The end results of the calculator are based on each individual answer you provide as you advance through this tool. The estimates you receive are based on policies and regulations set forth for the 2021-2022 for full-time traditional undergraduate students.
The great news is that you only need your cumulative grade point average (GPA) and about ten minutes of your time to get an estimated financial aid offer. That’s it! However, the calculator will be more accurate if you also have your Expected Family Contribution (EFC). You can find this number on your Student Aid Report (SAR) once you submit your 2021-2022 FAFSA and it is processed. If you provided an email address on your FAFSA, you will receive a copy of your SAR via email. Otherwise if will be mailed to your home address.
The results of the calculator are the net cost the student may be responsible to pay after subtracting estimated grants and scholarship from their potential charges. The remaining estimated balance allows students to start planning early how they want to pay for college, whether that be through a monthly payment plan or through loans. The Financial Aid Office also recommends that students continue to apply for outside scholarships to help with their college expenses.
The Financial Aid Office understands that although students may answer the time-specific questions correctly on the FAFSA, their household and financial situation may now be quite different. If that is the case, we recommend that you contact our office to discuss your situation.
