Answering the Affordability Question

THREE SIMPLE STEPS

  Step 1 | File Your FAFSA

First, you need to file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine your eligibility for federal grants and loans. If you haven’t already done so, don’t wait - submit your FAFSA now at fafsa.ed.gov.

Factors considered in this application include:

  • Income
  • Family size
  • Assets
  • Number of students in your family attending college

The FAFSA determines your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and the maximum amount of federal aid you can receive. This information is provided to your financial aid counselor at UC, who will look into other sources of assistance available through the College, including:

  • Federal, State and Institutional Grants
  • Endowed Scholarships
  • Alternative loans

  Step 2 | Run The Numbers

You can get a rough estimate of your cost of attendance at Utica College by using our Net Price Calculator (utica.edu/npc). You can also contact your Financial Aid Counselor for more information.

  Step 3 | Visit Us

Go to utica.edu/visit and:

  • register for an admissions event

or

  • arrange a private visit for you, your family, your friends – whoever you want to bring.

During your visit, you will have an opportunity to meet with a financial aid counselor and get your questions answered. You can also take a tour of campus, talk with students and faculty, and discover a little more of what it means to be a Pioneer.
