Financial Aid

How is Financial Aid Eligibility Determined?

A formula established by Congress is applied to the data which you submit on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The resulting Student Aid Report (SAR) includes and Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which indicates how much money you are expected to contribute toward your education. Your remaining financial need is determined by the following calculation:

Cost of Attendance (-) EFC = Financial Need

Your cost of attendance includes:

  • Tuition and fees
  • Room and Board
  • Books and Supplies
  • Estimated health insurance costs
  • An allowance for transportation
  • An allowance for miscellaneous expenses

All of our students are classified as independent, therefore your EFC and financial need eligibility will be based strictly on the personal information which you submit on the FAFSA. It is not dependent on your parents’ income and/or financial history.
