Award Letter ComparisonThis award letter comparison tool makes it easier to compare financial aid packages and college costs, on an apples-to-apples basis. It automatically calculates the net cost and out-of-pocket cost, highlights any unmet need, and helps you identify significant differences in costs (both overall and for specific line items) between two or more colleges.
Please use annual figures when completing this form. If you are comparing only two colleges, leave the third college name blank. Please supply as much information as possible. If you do not have some information, just leave the corresponding input field blank. You will find it helpful to have your award letters in front of you when you are completing this form. Not all of this information will be available on every award letter, as some colleges include unsubsidized Stafford Loans, PLUS loans and private education loans on the award letter, and some do not. This tool distinguishes between the different types of aid, whether included in the financial aid package or not, to make an apples-to-apples comparison possible.
