IRS Data Retrieval Tool Option

When completing your FAFSA use the Data Retrieval Tool option (DRT) to automatically transfer your and your parents' tax information directly from the IRS into your FAFSA. This significantly increases accuracy and expedites the application process. (If you have already filed your FAFSA but did not use the DRT, you may return to your FAFSA and select that option.)

Mount Holyoke's Net Price Calculator

The Net Price Calculator is designed to help prospective first-time undergraduate students and their parents estimate a family contribution and financial aid package. The Net Price Calculator uses a simplified version of the complex financial aid need analysis and packaging process at Mount Holyoke College. An early estimate can be a helpful tool for college planning, but please be aware that the calculator is intended for first time undergraduate students who are U.S. Citizens or permanent residents. If you have questions, please contact us.
