Financial Aid

Financial Need

Financial need determined is by using the Cost of Attendance (COA) and Expected Family Contribution (EFC). The EFC and financial need do not represent the dollar amount a student or family must pay.

                                         Formula for calculating financial need:
                                         Cost of Attendance (COA)
                                         - EFC
                                         - Any outside resources (scholarships,
                                           waivers, pre-payment tuition plans, etc.)
                                         -----------------------------------------------------------
                                         = Financial Need
Students must have financial need to be eligible for need-based aid. These awards may be limited by the student's total level of need as determined by the federal calculation.
