Introducing the Federal Student Aid Estimator

On Sept. 26, 2021, we launched the Federal Student Aid Estimator, a free tool that helps students quickly calculate the amount of financial aid they may be eligible to receive.

About the Federal Student Aid Estimator

Anyone can use the Federal Student Aid Estimator, which is available in Spanish and English. Users don't have to be logged in to receive an estimate of their aid eligibility.

The Federal Student Aid Estimator also provides students with

  • information about their Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and its role in determining their federal student aid, and
  • a link to the College Scorecard to help them find the college or career school that is the best fit for them.

Using the Federal Student Aid Estimator

In the Federal Student Aid Estimator, users enter information in three short sections—student, household, and financial—and the tool instantly displays estimated results.

Students will receive a non-binding estimate of their EFC, along with estimated eligibility for Federal Pell Grants, work-study funds, and federal student loans.
