The net price calculator is a tool for students and parents to get a estimate of what it may cost to attend Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College as a full-time first-time student for the upcoming school year. The “net price” (cost of attendance minus grants and scholarships) is a conservative estimate of the amount students and/or their families will have to cover with work, savings, and/or loans. The “cost of attendance” takes into consideration the budget needed for school, living expenses, and other essentials such as transportation and school supplies.
It is important for you to understand that the information you receive from the calculator is a broad estimate only, and does not contain potential subsidies that you may qualify for such as an academic or athletic scholarship. Many factors come into play when we award financial aid to students including, but not limited to: financial aid deadlines, academic standing, and potential aid from external/third parties.
Before you use the calculator, we want you to know the following.
- The tool is not an application for admission or financial aid.
- Use both custodial and non-custodial income and assets information. The results will only be as reliable as the data you provide.
- The net price calculator will only give you an estimate of your net price and aid eligibility. The financial aid office will make the final decision on your financial aid awards.
- To obtain financial aid from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, you are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
