Cost is a key factor in evaluating a student's higher education investment. The Net Price Calculator (NPC) is a good way for families to estimate their own level commitment in their student's first year at Earlham.
Earlham uses a variety of factors to determine a student's final aid award which are not always incorporated into the NPC. For example, the quality of a student's essay, personal references, final high school cumulative GPA and class rank, high school classes completed and the admissions interview are all criterion that could be considered but are not used in the NPC. For that reason, the NPC is only an estimate based on the data you provide and these limitations.
