Net Price Calculator
The Net Price Calculator uses 2020-2021 information to estimate for 2021-2022.
The NPC helps incoming first-time freshmen estimate their cost as well as their federal financial aid eligibility at one of West Virginia University's campuses (WVU in Morgantown, WVU Potomac State College in Keyser, and WVU Institute of Technology in Beckley).
Please note that for residents of the state of West Virginia, the NPC also estimates eligibility for the two most common state financial aid programs - the PROMISE Scholarship and the WV Higher Education Grant - if applicable to the student. PROMISE requires a separate application, and both the application and Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be submitted by March 1, 2021 for the 2021-2022 aid year. For WV Higher Education Grant consideration, the FAFSA must be submitted by April 15, 2021.

Why Are These Estimated and Not Actual Costs?
Actual institutional fees such as tuition are approved by the WVU Board of Governors - usually finalized in summer for the new, upcoming academic year that begins in the fall. So, costs are often not finalized until a few months before the fall semester begins.
In addition, direct costs can be impacted by changes that students make on their account, such as changes to their campus, major, residency, enrollment, or choices they make for on-campus housing or dining plans.
Indirect costs provided in the NPC are averages based on what students commonly spend. Indirect costs are educational expenses a student may have that are usually not billed by the University, such as books, transportation, and personal expenses. These costs can also be impacted by choices made by students, such as choosing to buy used versus new books versus renting books. For indirect costs, we recommend that students develop their own budget based on their actual expenses.
