Holy Cross may be more affordable than you think. Estimate your share of college costs and how much financial aid you may be eligible to receive.
Estimating your Eligibility
We offer two different calculators to help you and your family make more informed decisions about college costs. These tools provide a need-based Holy Cross financial aid estimate to students who are US citizens or permanent residents. Any merit-based scholarships available to students who qualify, are not identified by these calculators.
Using six basic financial aid questions, this tool is designed to provide you and your family with:
- an estimate of your need-based financial aid eligibility
- an estimate of your family’s expected contribution
It is recommended that students and families start with this easy-to use calculator.
- a more precise estimate of your need-based financial aid eligibility
- an estimate of the net price for a full-time, first year student attending the College of the Holy Cross.
We use a standard process to carefully review each family’s financial circumstances and establish an expected contribution; this takes into consideration the number of dependents enrolled in college, as well as income and other assets. The level of financial assistance in future years will be impacted by income and asset fluctuations as well as changes in the number of dependent family members enrolled as undergraduate students in a college or university.
