Acceptable Documentation

In accordance with the Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), as amended, as of October 29, 2011, each post-secondary institution that participates in the Title IV Federal Student Aid programs is required to post a net price calculator on its Web site. The net price calculator uses institutional data to provide estimated net price information to current and prospective students, and their families, based on a student’s individual circumstances. This calculator is intended to provide estimated net price information (defined as estimated cost of attendance — including tuition and required fees, books and supplies, room and board (meals), and other related expenses — minus estimated grant and scholarship aid) to current and prospective students, and their families, based on what similar students paid in a previous year. Please note that the estimates provided apply to full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students only. The estimate provided does not represent a final determination, or actual award of financial assistance, or a final net price; they are only estimates based on cost of attendance, and financial aid provided to students in a previous year. Cost of attendance and Financial Aid availability change from year to year. The estimates shall not be binding on the Secretary of Education, Osceola Technical College, or the State of Florida.
