Net Price Calculator 2017/18

UCM's Net Price Calculator will help you estimate your total cost for your first year at UCM. Please be sure to fill out all information accurately and completely so that we can provide an estimate of net costs after financial assistance. This calculator will provide a preliminary estimate of federal, state and institutional aid eligibility, to help families gauge what aid the student may be awarded and to make arrangements to cover the cost of attendance.

Current costs are based upon 2017/2018 figures. The cost calculator will be updated to reflect 2018/2019 costs when room/board/tuition are approved by the Board of Governor's in Spring 2018.
