Cost of Attendance

How is your need determined?

Demonstrated Financial Need = Cost of Attendance – Expected Family Contribution (EFC)

By law, federal aid recipients cannot receive more than their Cost of Attendance. The Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is based on the income and asset information you provide on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The table below is based on full-time enrollment for 9 months (Fall & Spring semesters) during the 2018-19 academic year.
