Net Price Calculator
Ball State University is pleased to provide this net price calculator as a guide to assist in early financial planning for college. This calculator will provide a preliminary, nonbinding estimate* of federal, state, and institutional aid eligibility based on federal methodology. It was created to help families gauge what financial aid the student may be awarded and to make arrangements to cover the cost of college attendance.
The calculator is only intended for use by U.S. citizens or permanent residents who will be pursuing undergraduate degrees and who will be enrolled full time on Ball State's main campus in Muncie, Indiana. If you are an international student, please visit the Rinker Center for International Programs. This calculator does not apply to graduate/professional students.
Please note this calculator is for estimates only, and the actual award package will vary, depending on time of year, regulatory changes, and availability of funds. The Ball State University Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will make the final determination for the award package.
*Financial aid eligibility may change each year due to the federal, state, and institutional regulations. This estimate is calculated using current regulations and/or policies. Work Study funding is not guaranteed. Work Study will only be awarded to eligible students if funding allows. The PLUS Loan option is available to help families cover both their EFC (expected family contribution) and any "gap" not covered by financial aid. State aid determination is made by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education (CHE). Any outside aid received may alter the estimate provided by the calculator.
Please disable any pop-up blocker software prior to using the student aid calculator. Please have your latest tax return(s) and W2s available, as you will be asked to enter your information. It is important to review the information you submit, as the calculator is only as reliable as the information entered. This calculator will provide a preliminary estimate of federal, state, and institutional aid eligibility--including Post 9/11 GI Benefits for eligible veterans and active duty service members.
