What does EFC mean on the FAFSA?
EFC stands for Estimated Family Contribution, which will be presented on the last page of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the California Dream Act application. To be eligible for First-Year Promise, you need to have an EFC of $12,000 or less.
My EFC was above $12,000. Does that mean I should not apply?
No, you should still apply. If we do not have enough students with an EFC less than $12,000, we will start taking those with an EFC of $12,000 or more.
What classes should I register for in fall 2018?
We will work with students during the Summer Boot Camp to determine classes to take in the fall and spring terms. Students will be required to take FYE 100, Counseling 150, math and English during their first year. Other courses will include General Education, major coursework and electives, all based on your major.
When will I be notified if I am accepted?
We will notify students of acceptance starting on May 21, 2018. An email will be sent to the email address entered on your First-Year Promise application.
