Other Aid Options
Your net price gives you a realistic indicator of what you could potentially pay out of pocket after your gift aid (grants/scholarships) is applied. You calculate this by subtracting your gift aid from your cost of attendance. Once you have your net price, you can either pay out-of-pocket, utilize student loans, or consider other options which may require additional research and actions.
