Financial Aid Eligibility

How Eligibility is Determined

Once your FAFSA is received and is complete and correct, we will verify your admission status, academic progress and your expected enrollment status.

Most federal financial aid is based on your financial need. To calculate this we deduct your EFC (Expected Family Contribution) which is listed on your SAR from your estimated cost of attendance.

Cost of attendance includes estimates for:

  • Tuition and fees
  • Books and supplies
  • Room and board
  • Personal expenses
  • Transportation expenses

Once your financial aid awards are determined, we will send you an award letter. If you are awarded Federal Work-Study and/or Federal Direct Loans, you must accept these awards and complete additional requirements online. Instructions will be included with your award letter. Pay careful attention to these instructions.
