Net Price Calculators: An Overview


The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 required the Secretary of Education to develop an individual net price calculator using the same "net price" definition included in the law.  The Department published the calculator on October 29, 2009.  The next step in implementation was for each institution to make a net price calculator available on its website - either the one developed by the Department or a comparable one developed by the institution - within two years, hence the implementation date of October 29, 2011.
