New Tool Helps Families Plan College Expenses

The college search is an exciting time for students and their families as they explore the many options for higher education. The excitement, however, can give way to confusion when families begin to compare the costs of attending college.

Palm Beach Atlantic University seeks to help families make informed decisions about college through a Net Price Calculator. The new calculator tool, which was introduced this week, addresses the options and opportunities available for financial aid to pay for college.

“By answering just a few simple questions, students immediately will be able to see their probable academic merit scholarship,” said Todd Martin, director of financial aid. “They can then continue to use the calculator to learn whether they qualify for federal and state grants as well as institutional aid provided by the University.”

Additional information about financial aid is available on the University’s website.
