Net Price Calculator
Cuyahoga Community College values affordability. The Net Price Calculator helps students estimate their cost of attendance based on the most recent year's costs. It provides an early approximation of what a new first-year student can expect to pay to attend Tri-C.
FAFSA4caster will help you understand your options for paying for college. Use this interactive estimator to determine your potential financial aid eligibility. This is only an estimate and should not be used to apply for financial aid. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at fafsa.gov to determine actual eligibility for federal aid, including grants and student loans.
Creating a personal budget is key to financial health. We encourage all students to create a budget to help them meet their short- and long-term financial goals. Use this budget calculator to help you create a personal budget.
What career are you planning to pursue once you graduate? Do you know what you might expect to earn in this career? When planning your short- and long-term financial goals, it is important to know what your expected income might be.

Maintaining good credit is another key to financial wellness. A good credit score influences interest rates for credit you apply for to purchase a car or house. Many employers now review an applicant’s credit score when making hiring decisions. Do you know your credit score?
