Oglethorpe is pleased to provide students with this financial aid calculator as a guide in planning for college. The calculator will estimate financial need and merit awards based on prior year data. Estimates are based on award policies for the 2019-2020 academic year and are subject to change.
  • Your estimate is meant to help you plan your educational financing at Oglethorpe University and is based on the information you provide in this calculator.
  • This calculator is intended for full-time, first-time domestic freshmen who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
  • Please remember that this estimate does not represent a final determination, or actual award, of admissibility, financial assistance or a final net price; estimates are based on cost of attendance and financial aid provided to students in 2019-2020. This estimate shall not be binding on the Secretary of Education, Oglethorpe University, or the State.
  • Be sure to complete the required admissions and financial aid materials, including the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to determine your final eligibility for federal grants, loans, or work-study.
  • If your family has special circumstances, please contact the Office of Financial Aid after submitting your FAFSA for an individual review of your award.
  • Oglethorpe University offers a variety of strategies and resources to keep the net cost of an Oglethorpe education affordable. We are pleased to be able to offer both need-based aid and awards based on academic achievement. For our full-time students enrolling in college for the first time in 2019, 99.9% received grant or scholarship aid.
