How Financial Aid is Determined
The Cost of Attendance (COA), which is determined by GC, is an estimate of tuition, fees, room, board, books, supplies, personal, and miscellaneous expenses. This estimate is used in financial aid calculations and is prepared in advance of actual fees being established. The financial aid Cost of Attendance includes cost paid directly to GC and also indirect cost that the student may incur associated with attending school.
The Expected Family Contribution (EFC), is derived from a congressional formula that is applied to a student's family income as reported on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year. The EFC is used to determine your eligibility for the federal student aid programs.
