See how your EFC impacts your financial aid award.
- What is your EFC? Your Expected Family Contribution is the amount you and your family will be expected to pay for a single year of college.
- Where does your EFC come from? Your EFC is calculated each year based on information you provide on your financial aid application -- the FAFSA (and the CSS PROFILE, if the college requires it).
- How does your EFC affect how much aid you get? Colleges subtract your EFC from the cost of attendance to calculate the amount of financial aid you are eligible for.
