Northwood launches new dynamic net price calculator

January 16, 2024

As part of our commitment to financial clarity and price transparency, Northwood University is announcing the launch of a new and improved net price calculator.

“Our goal is to ensure that every student understands what it will cost to attend Northwood University and that all students see it as affordable,” stated Financial Aid Director Dr. Christie McDonald.

Susie Poli-Smith, vice president of undergraduate enrollment at Northwood, is excited for her team to show students and families the generous aid provided by the university.

“Our new net price calculator was designed to put the student first and be mobile-friendly,” stated Poli-Smith. “We want to make it easy for students to understand the available aid and scholarships, and this enables us to do that.”

Columbia University graduates developed the calculator, allowing current and prospective students to get a personalized price estimate in under five minutes. The goal is to clarify and simplify the student financial experience.

With its ease of use, the platform calculates how much financial aid a student would receive and how much they would need to pay out of pocket, and it helps them explore the different ways they can cover that cost. The tool allows users to calculate costs over various periods, such as monthly, annually, or for the time it takes to complete the degree. It also provides information about available scholarships, student loans, and other financial aid options to assist in paying for school.

“There is no greater investment than higher education, and Northwood has a proven history of helping students launch into successful careers,” Poli-Smith added. “More than 90% of our students have full-time jobs upon graduation, and more than 30% of Northwood graduates own all or part of a business. In addition, more than 60,000 Northwood alumni are thriving worldwide. We are recognized as a ‘Best Value Business School’ with an excellent return on investment. The college journey starts with research, and this new calculator will aid traditional undergraduate students in discovering how affordable a degree from Northwood University is!”
