Education is an investment in your future, and we know that the investment can get expensive. But here’s the good news: Every year, the U.S. Department of Education’s Federal Student Aid office provides billions of dollars in assistance to millions of students and their families. This aid can be used to pay for tuition and fees, books, supplies, and more. Financial Aid falls into one of the four types:

Financial Need

The majority of financial aid is based on demonstrating a financial need through the completion of the FAFSA. Financial need is determined by subtracting the student's Expected Family Contribution (EFC) from the Cost of Attendance (COA).

The Cost of Attendance is more than direct costs of tuition, fees and books. Indirect college expenses such as living expenses, transportation and personal expenditures are considered.
