  • Net Price Calculator

    The Net Price Calculator provides an estimate of typical expenses, and an estimate of financial aid you may be eligible to receive.  This information is based on price of attendance and financial aid provided to students in a previous year.  It does not provide estimates on scholarships or Minnesota State Grant awards.

     What is the Net Price Calculator?

    • The Net Price Calculator is a tool for students and parents to use to get an estimate of what it may cost to attend Minnesota State University Moorhead.
    • The information you receive from the calculator is an estimate of costs and financial aid.
    • The estimate assumes that you will be a degree seeking undergraduate student enrolled full-time (12 or more credits) in fall and spring semesters. 

    How does the calculator work?

    • The calculator uses information on the typical cost of attending Minnesota State University Moorhead, including tuition, fees, books, supplies, room and board, transportation and personal expenses.
    • Your actual costs will vary depending on your major, the courses you select and your living arrangements.
    • Using family financial information that you enter, the calculator will estimate the amount of grant aid that similar students received in the previous year.

    Getting Started

    • Using the calculator should take less than ten minutes of your time, assuming you have family financial information available.
    • You will be asked some basic questions about you and your family’s financial situation so it might be helpful to have recent tax forms or pay stubs on hand.


    • Information you enter into the tool is not retained, transmitted or used by Minnesota State University Moorhead or any third party.
    • You will be asked basic information about you and your family’s income and plans for college in order to calculate your expected costs and financial aid.
    • You will not, however, be asked to enter your name, date of birth, address, social security number or any other personally identifiable information. 

    Things to Keep in Mind

    • The Net Price Calculator can only provide an ESTIMATE of costs and financial aid.  It is not a final determination or actual award of financial assistance or a final net price.
    • Financial aid award packages are determined after a student has submitted a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) indicating the Minnesota State University Moorhead FAFSA school code 002367.
    • For more information on applying for Federal student aid, go to http://www.fafsa.ed.gov.
    • Estimated costs are based on the costs for students enrolled in 2011-2012.
    • Financial aid is estimated based on the median grant and scholarship aid received by first-time, full-time degree seeking students enrolled in 2011-2012.
    • The financial aid estimates do not include any loans or work-study assistance.
    • Education costs and available financial aid programs will vary each academic year.
