How The EFC Is Calculated


What Is College Financial Aid

Student financial aid refers to funding intended to help students pay educational expenses including tuition and fees, room and board, and books/supplies, and miscellanious costs, for education at a college, university, or private school.

Financial aid may be classified into two types, merit-based or need-based.


Where Does Most College Financial Aid Come Form
