The below calculators, as well as additional tools, are available in the calculators section to assist with various loan calculations or college costs and savings.

Federal & State Aid Estimators – the Federal Student Aid Estimator provides estimates of federal student aid, including Pell grant and student loan eligibility, as well as an expected family contribution (EFC). The Monetary Award Program (MAP) Estimator will estimate the amount of a MAP grant a student may qualify for. Results are based on estimates and may not reflect actual awards.

College Cost Calculator – estimates the future cost of a child's college education. Costs are based upon average annual increases and the number of anticipated years spent in college.

Loan Repayment Calculator – estimates what a student’s monthly payments will be once they enter repayment. The calculator can help them decide how much they should borrow based on what they reasonably will be able to repay.
