We suggest that you use MyinTuition for a quick estimate, then use our Net Price Calculator for an estimate that is more customized to your individual family financial circumstances.

MyinTuition and our Net Price Calculator are designed to estimate eligibility for need-based financial aid. All students, regardless of whether they qualify for need-based aid, are also considered for merit-based scholarships.

 

To receive a full evaluation of financial aid eligibility, admitted students must complete the entire financial aid application process.  Financial aid application results are delivered shortly after the student is admitted, provided that priority filing dates are met.

Each year, Macalester publishes a table that shows the results of the financial aid process by family income range.

There are some situations where these estimating tools are not applicable:

  • Families who reside outside the United States (regardless of citizenship)
  • When biological/adoptive parents are not currently married (and do not reside in the same household)
  • Independent students

If you have questions about your family’s financial aid eligibility or circumstances, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
