Use the calculator below to estimate the Annual Budgeted Amount, which is your estimated annual expenses minus your annual aid:
- Estimated Annual Expenses
The calculator automatically fills in expenses paid directly to Northwestern, such as tuition, room and board (average charges are shown; actual charges will be based on room assignments and meal plans), health insurance, fees, and other expenses.
- Estimated Annual Financial Aid
Fill in the financial aid you expect to receive for the year, including any scholarships, grants, and student loans after fees.
When you have determined your Annual Budgeted Amount, enter it into your 9PAY Application form. A minimum Annual Budgeted Amount of $1,000 is recommended.
You may make changes to your Annual Budgeted Amount by forwarding the new amount in writing to the 9PAY Department of the Office of Student Accounts via mail or via email.
