Free Online Resources for Students
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 studentaid.gov to determine actual eligibility for federal aid, including grants and student loans.
