9PAY Calculator

Use the calculator below to estimate the Annual Budgeted Amount, which is your estimated annual expenses minus your annual aid:

  • Estimated Annual Expenses
    Fill in all expenses paid directly to Northwestern, such as tuition, health insurance, and other expenses. The calculator below uses estimated amounts for Room and Board, and assumes you have not opted out of the Student Health Insurance Plan.
  • Estimated Annual Credits
    Fill in your estimated credits. If you are a financial aid recipient, use the information you have on your most recent award letter for scholarship, grant, and loan amounts (after fees) in the calculation. You may need to update amounts once your award has been finalized.
  • Annual Budgeted Amount
    The calculator will subtract your estimated credits from your estimated expenses to determine your Annual Budgeted Amount. A minimum Annual Budgeted Amount of $1,000 is recommended.

When you have determined your Annual Budgeted Amount, enter it into your 9PAY Application form via CAESAR. Once your 9PAY application has been processed, this amount will be divided into 9 monthly payments beginning July 1.

You may make changes to your Annual Budgeted Amount by forwarding the new amount in writing to the Office of Student Accounts (studentaccounts-ev@northwestern.edu).
