The dollar amounts estimated by the NPC apply to full-time, first-time, degree-seeking students in the undergraduate day program. A full-time student is one who has enrolled for a minimum of 12 credits per semester. Students enrolling in Albertus through the Division of Professional & Graduate Studies should not use the NPC.
The NPC uses information from the 2011-2012 academic year: 88% of first-time freshman received financial aid and the median financial aid award totaled $18,000.
When you use the NPC, you will enter information about your financial situation such as annual income and family size. Using that information and real financial data from a recent academic year at Albertus, the NPC will provide you with estimates of your Cost of Attendance (COA) and your grant aid award. By subtracting your estimated grant aid award from your COA, the NPC will calculate an estimate of your actual cost to attend Albertus. The NPC will not use federal student loans and work programs in its calculations. When determining billable charges, consider only tuition & fees and room & board.
You should treat the amounts calculated by the NPC as guides to help you plan how you will pay for your education. The NPC provides estimated dollar amounts. These estimates shall not be binding on the Secretary of Education, Albertus Magnus College, or the State of Connecticut.
The NPC is a planning tool, not an application for financial aid. If you're ready to apply for financial aid, please start the process by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) using school code 001374.
