Net Price Calculator – Cost of Attending UW-Green Bay – Financial Aid

Net Price Calculator

The University of Wisconsin at Green Bay provides this Net Price Calculator as an early financial planning tool for the university. The calculator is a approximation federal and state aid eligibility for undergraduate students planning to attend UW Green Bay. This is for your information only and is NOT a request for financial assistance.

Many factors are considered when awarding student financial aid, including but not limited to: timelines, federal and state funding levels, and family financial situation. This calculator provides a estimate and it may not incorporate all possible attribution considerations. For example, scholarships a student receives are not taken into account in this tool; however, these funds generally impact a student’s calculated financial need.

First step: expected family contribution (CFE)

A key factor in determining assistance is the Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which is a measure of your family’s financial strength. Each year you wish to be considered for financial assistance, your family will complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This form, once processed by the federal government, will calculate your EFC. The following link will provide a preliminary quote of what this EFC could be. Again, it’s a estimate and will vary depending on the federal formula and the accuracy of the data you provide.

Tips for using the College Board site:
  1. Use the Next button to navigate through the EFC calculation.
  2. Choose Federal Methodology as the formula.
  3. Have basic income and asset information ready before you begin.
  4. Although you can save your data by creating a account, no information is submitted to the UWGB or the Department of Education.

Second step: estimation process

Now that you have your EFC value, please enter the value below and verify the remaining information.

The important points
  1. It’s a ESTIMATE not your actual financial aid offer
  2. Do not use EFC of 0 (zero) unless the above calculator says you should use 0 (zero)

The estimate provided here is based on 2021-22 costs, award rules, and federal/state appropriations. This estimate depends on the accuracy of the financial information that was used to calculate an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) in Step 1 where you consulted the College Boards EFC Calculator. Future costs and estimated assistance are subject to change. Funding reductions or changes to aid rules could affect future grant eligibility. Additional sources of funding may be available for veterans or dependents of veterans, contact the UWGB Veterans Services Representative or see the link below for more information.

This net price calculator gives you a estimate your tuition fees and net price for one academic year.

Keep in mind that this is not a request for financial aid. Data provided and calculator results are not stored by UW-Green Bay. In order to receive a genuine offer of financial assistance, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be submitted each year of attendance.

Where to find more information

This calculator provides an unofficial estimate of your eligibility for financial aid. Use of this calculator does not constitute an actual application for financial assistance. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and gain admission to UW Green Bay in order to be eligible and receive actual financial aid which may include a grant, loan, or educational assistance. For more information on applying for federal student aid, go to

69% of full-time students entering college for the first time in 2019-2020 at UW-Green Bay received a grant/scholarship. We encourage you to submit the FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1 each year.

Scholarships listed assume funding is available in all programs at the time eligibility is determined. However, many programs have limited funding and will not be offered once funds are exhausted. Generally, the Federal Pell Grant and Federal Direct Loan programs are not short of funds. We encourage you to submit the FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1 each year.
