Determining Financial Need

The Office of Financial Aid is committed to addressing the financial needs of students and their families, through personal and professional service. We have provided tools to help you determine how affordable a Canisius education can be.

Our Net Price Calculator was developed to help prospective first time undergraduate students and their families plan for educational expenses. You will be asked to provide student and parental financial information that will be used to calculate an estimate of the net price you will pay for your first year at Canisius College.

As you use this site, remember that the results will be useful for planning purposes. However, the results of the Net Price Calculator are not guaranteed. Completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is necessary before you may receive an official financial aid notification. In addition, actual aid decisions are made on an individual basis. Financial aid administrators can, and often do, adjust the figures when they consider specific family circumstances.
