Cost of Attendance & Financial Need


Financial Need: If you meet all of the eligibility criteria, the Financial Aid Office will calculate how much financial aid you are eligible to receive. This formula subtracts the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) from the estimated educational costs, called the Cost of Attendance. The dollar amount remaining is your financial need.
 
Your need will be funded with various federal and state programs, plus any other resources for which you are eligible.
