Calculating Your Payment

Determining exactly what amount to pay Macalester can be complicated, especially if you received financial aid of several types.  Please use the worksheet below to calculate your payment.  You will need 

  1. Your current account balance.
  2. Your current financial aid package for the semester (available to students at 1600grand.macalester.edu). 
  3. To know which, if any, loans you will be using for the semester.
  4. To know whether you are participating in the payment plan and, if so, how much you are financing through this mechanism.  You will also need to know how much of your fall semester payment plan has already been applied to your account.
  5. To know whether you will be directly applying your wages from student employment to your account balance.
