Students and their families may face situations where the original application information does not accurately reflect their current circumstances and ability to pay for college. 当学生申请经济援助时, the financial data elements on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) reflect the previous year's earnings of students and their parents, 这是他们的联邦所得税报告.
The FAFSA is considered to be a "snapshot" of the family's financial situation as of the date it is submitted. The expected family contribution (EFC) is calculated according to a federal formula that uses the household and financial information to determine a student/and or family's financial strength. The EFC represents the portion of a student's and their family's financial resources that can reasonably be expected to pay for college.
If you or your family’s current income situation is different than information reported on the FAFSA, please contact our office for more information concerning whether or not you may qualify for special circumstances consideration.
