Financial Aid Estimator

The CUNY website has a Financial Aid Estimator to calculate the financial aid awards you may receive. It will let you see the cost of attending Hunter as well as the amount of financial aid available to you to meet these costs.

In order for CUNY to give you a financial aid estimate, we will ask you to supply your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which is found on your Student Aid Report (SAR). You received this when you filed your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you have not yet completed and submitted your FAFSA, you may do so by going to

When you receive your SAR with your EFC, please return to this site to obtain your CUNY financial aid estimate. To access the Financial Aid Estimator, click CUNY Net Price Calculator or go to the financial aid home page and click on the Financial Aid Estimator link on the right.
