Latest from FSA: Updated Net Price Calculator Template

February 5, 2014

Federal Student Aid has updated the Net Price Calculator template, which was highlighted in the Electronic Announcement:  2014-01-27 (General).

As required by section 132 of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (amended), each institution of higher education that participates in the Title IV HEA programs must post on its website a net price calculator. In meeting this requirement, institutions may develop their own net price calculator or use the template developed by the Department of Education.

The latest version of the Department’s Net Price Calculator template, which reflects data from the 2012-2013 award year, is now available at the Department’s Net Price Calculator Information Center (http://nces.ed.gov/ipeds/resource/net_price_calculator.asp).

In addition to the template, FSA also provides on the Information Center website:

  • The 2013 template Quick Start Guide, source code, and Expected Family Contribution (EFC) tables
  • A bulk data file upload tool
  • A zip file containing a list of the net price calculator web addresses that institutions reported through IPEDS
  • Frequently asked questions
  • Links to additional resources and guidance pertaining to the Net Price Calculator

If you have any questions about the net price calculator template, please contact the Net Price Calculator Help Desk at 877/299-3593 or e-mail npc@inovas.net.
