/ What is an Expected Family Contribution (EFC)?

Print Friendly

The Expected Family Contribution (EFC) provides a measure of a family’s financial strength and will be used in determining a student’s financial need.   Though used to calculate a student’s financial aid award, the EFC does not represent an expected payment amount to the school.  A lower EFC translates to a higher financial need, which may result in a higher financial aid award.  If an EFC is higher than our estimated yearly budget, then a student does not have demonstrated financial need.
