Most financial aid is awarded based on financial need and eligibility of the program. Recipients must have a FAFSA on file with the college and complete all the verification process before an award is offered. Each student has a standardized Cost of Attendance (COA) budget which is used to calculate the financial need (formula below):

The financial aid equation:  COA – EFC (estimated family contribution) = Need

 

Award amounts may not exceed your cost of attendance (COA).  A school may substitute certain types of loans for the student’s expected family contribution (EFC).  Federal loans that may replace the EFC include Unsubsidized Direct Loans and Direct Parent Loans for Undergraduate Students, (PLUS).

 

Financial Aid awarded to students is determined on the below formula:

Cost of Attendance

minus(-) EFC (Estimated Family Contribution)

equals(=) Student Need

minus(-) Pell Grant

minus(-) Veteran Benefits, scholarships, fee waivers, discounts

minus(-) SEOG, Federal workstudy

equals(=) Loan Need
