Determining Need

A student's financial need is determined by subtracting the Expected Family Contribution (EFC)—as determined from the information provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)—from the cost of attendance (see below) as determined by program of study and enrollment status.

Cost of Attendance (COA)  - Expected Family Contribution = Financial Need

The cost of attendance includes charges that are billed directly by the College (direct costs) such as tuition and fees and indirect expenses that students may need to consider, such as housing, food, books, supplies, transportation and various personal living expenses. If your residency and/or enrollment status changes from the time of application, your student budget and financial aid award may also change.
