Estimation Form Caveats
This page computes an estimate of the EFC using a formula very similar to the Federal Methodology approved by Congress and used by school financial aid administrators when awarding Federal aid. Although our formula is virtually identical to the Federal Methodology, the EFC calculated by this program could vary from the EFC figures calculated by the Federal processor and the school's financial aid administrators. (For most students, however, the results should be within 1% of the official figures.) The estimates calculated by this form are not guaranteed to be identical with the results from your official need analysis.
This page is not affiliated with any university financial aid office or government agency. The information you provide on this form is not retained in any fashion.
Filling out this form does not enable you to qualify for financial aid. You must still submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), CSS Financial Aid PROFILE (formerly known as the FAF or Financial Aid Form), and any other forms required by your college's financial aid administrators.
International students are not eligible for Federal student aid, but may be eligible for some state or institutional aid. International students should look at EduPASS.
Caveats notwithstanding, we have tried our best to ensure that the estimates computed by this form are in the right ballpark for typical universities. They are the most accurate estimates available from any financial aid estimation service.
