What is the Net Price Calculator?
The Net Price Calculator is a tool for students and parents to obtain an estimate of what it may cost to attend Wiregrass Georgia Technical College (WGTC). The information you receive from the calculator is a broad estimate for first-time, full-time students and may vary from student to student depending on personal factors. It is an estimate based on cost of attendance and financial aid provided to students in a previous year. The estimates are not binding on WGTC or the state.
How does it work?
To estimate your net cost of attending WGTC, the Net Price Calculator first considers the colleges’ cost of attendance, which includes tuition, fees, books and supplies, as well as those costs related to normal living expenses such as room and board and other personal expenses. Next, using financial data you enter into the calculator, the calculator estimates the amount that you/your family could reasonably expect to contribute to pay for college expenses. Finally, the calculator evaluates your eligibility for financial aid (need-based and non-need based) by matching your financial aid personal characteristics to the criteria the college uses to determine financial aid awards.
How can the Net Price Calculator help me?
Net price is the key to understanding what a specific college is likely to cost and allows you to better compare your out-of-pocket expense for one college to another. Please note that in estimating costs for a technical college, the calculator assumes the student is attending year-round, including a summer term. Other colleges may only assume attendance for fall and spring terms, but not summer.
Completing the calculator should take just a few minutes of your time. You will need to answer some basic questions about you/your family’s financial situation. It might be helpful to have recent tax forms or pay stubs on hand before you begin. This is not an official application for financial aid. To be considered for financial aid please complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at fafsa.gov.
The estimate provided using this net price calculator does not represent a final determination, or actual award, of financial assistance. The price of attendance and financial aid availability may change.
