Financial Aid



Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is the number that is used to determine student eligibility for federal student aid. This number results from the financial information provided by the student in the FAFSA application. EFC is reported to the student on the Student Aid Report (SAR).

The EFC formulas use the financial information students provide on the FAFSA to calculate the EFC. Financial Aid Officers (FAO) subtracts the EFC from students’ Cost of Attendance (COA) to determine individual need for federal student financial assistance as well as selected district financial aid.
