Costs & Financing Solutions


Net Price Calculator

The net price calculator is a tool for students and parents to use to get the estimate of what it may cost to attend Northern Illinois University each year. It is important for you to understand that the information you receive from the calculator is a broad estimate. Many factors come into play when we award financial aid to students including, but not limited to: deadlines, levels of funding, grade levels, and academics.

It is also important to note that the net price calculator does not incorporate Federal Direct Loans into its financial aid calculations. Eligible students who file a FAFSA are eligible for low interest, deferred loans through the Federal Direct Lending Program. The loan amounts students are offered vary based on a student's dependency status and grade level in school. For more information on Direct Loans click here.
