FINANCIAL AID

Cost of Attendance

At any school, your financial need is determined by adding college fees and living costs while subtracting an estimated family contribution (EFC).  The federal government standardizes the exact calculations used to determine your EFC.  Your contribution is assessed in the same way regardless of the school you attend, but the actual awards vary by institution because of the differences in cost.

college fees + living costs – estimated family contribution (EFC) = financial need
