Sample Financial Case Studies

It's impossible to anticipate every situation and combination of factors that might affect the cost of an undergraduate college education. We've listed case studies below to cover some of those possible scenarios.

We have tried to be as clear, complete, and realistic as we can in each case. But they're still hypothetical. You will need to work with one of the college's Financial Aid counselors to refine the projected costs relating to your circumstances.
