Lehigh’s strong commitment to need based financial aid is designed to minimize student loan indebtedness. Utilize tools to determine a loose estimate of your financial need.
We encourage students to utilize the Net Price Calculator, which is a tool for students and their parents that gives an idea of a student's eligibility for financial aid and estimates their out-of-pocket expenses. Even if you're not going to college in the near future, the net price calculator will help you to learn about college costs and gather financial aid information. You can create "what if" scenarios based on expected family income and anticipated expenses, so you can start to plan and save well before applying to college. We strongly encourage families to contact our office if you utilize this tool to determine accuracy and to discuss the results in greater detail.
A comprehensive site that provides an opportunity to calculate estimates of family contribution under both the Federal and Institutional methodologies. You can register for, and actually complete and file, the CSS Financial Aid PROFILE Application, required by Lehigh University for aid consideration, by using this site. View the College Board's Expected Family Contribution Calculator.
At this website, you can obtain information about federal student aid. To complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is required for all federal aid and most state grant programs, please visit the Federal Student Aid website.
