The University of Central Florida is providing the Shopping Sheet as part of the Principles of Excellence, a presidential directive for the U.S. Departments of Defense, Veterans Affairs, and Education to establish a set of principles to enhance consumer protection for service members, veterans, and other military personnel and their families regarding the use of veteran and military education benefits.
The Shopping Sheet is a college cost comparison tool to help prospective students compare aid offers from different schools based on their “Estimated Net Cost” after grants and/or scholarships. It also presents financial aid data and estimated costs in a standardized format.
The shopping sheet is not meant to replace the award offer from UCF or any other school. Instead, it is a tool whereby prospective undergraduate students are provided a clear, direct comparison between participating schools as they make a college choice.
