Tuition + Financial Aid

An education at SFAI is a significant investment in your future.

We are committed to helping motivated students finance their education by offering over $8.5 million in fellowships, scholarships, and grants each year. We encourage all students to consider and apply for any available financial aid, including federal and state financial aid, need-based grant assistance, and federal student loans.

Net-Price Calculator

The Net Price Calculator allows you to estimate your financial aid eligibility as a full-time freshman or as a transfer student. Sources of funding are made available by federal and state governments as well as SFAI.

As you use the net price calculator, please remember:

  • This is not an application for admission or financial aid.
  • The results are only as reliable as the data you provide and may not cover all the costs of attendance.
  • The net price calculator gives an estimate of your net price and aid eligibility.
  • The Financial Aid Office makes the final decision on your financial aid award.

These estimates do not represent a final determination, actual award of financial assistance or a final net price whether written or implied.

Estimates are based on the current cost of attendance and financial aid available and are subject to change without prior notice.
