You should have your parents’ and your own latest tax returns on hand for reference, as well as savings, investment, and other asset information.

You’ll also see an estimate of the remaining cost you and your family would be expected to pay or finance. 


How accurate is it? Back to Top

Your results from the Net Price Calculator will be only as reliable as the information you provide. Keep in mind that the calculated amount of financial aid is an estimate, not an official offer. The estimate provided using this net price calculator does not represent a final determination, or actual award, of financial assistance. The price of attendance and financial aid availability may change. This estimate shall not be binding on the Secretary of Education, this institution of higher education or the State in which this institution of higher education is located.

Notre Dame of Maryland University's Office of Financial Aid will determine your actual award amount based on your  Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and other supporting documents.


Who can use it? Back to Top

The Net Price Calculator is designed for prospective full-time Women's College students who are U.S. citizens and permanent residents. It is not intended for use by international students, returning students, graduate students, or CAUS students.

Although the calculator bases its estimates on the cost of attendance for the current academic year, it may also be helpful for families planning future educational expenses for younger students. The clearer your understanding of expected college costs, the better you can start to plan ahead and save.
