Financial Aid Calculator

<p>How accurate or close to the actual amount are they? For example, I used the UCSD calculator and it said I would get about $15,000 in grant money and for USC about $30,000.</p>

</p>

<p>The net price calculator is for prospective and current undergraduate, dependent, California resident students living in on-campus residence halls. By answering a few simple questions, the calculator will present you with an early estimate of your full-time 2011–2012 cost of attendance and financial aid at UC San Diego.</p>

<p>However, maybe the website has another NPC for OOS students to use? I tried to find another one, but didn't. It seems odd to only have one for instate students.</p>
