EFC Calculator Instructions
When entering dollar amounts, please enter whole dollar amounts (no cents), without dollar signs, commas, or periods. Round off all figures to the nearest dollar, rounding up for 50 cents or more, and rounding down for 49 cents or less. For example, $1,213.58 would be entered as 1214 in the appropriate field.
This form calculates the EFC for a single year, so please enter school costs, scholarships and financial information accordingly.
If you leave a field blank, it will be assumed to be zero. The only exception is for federal taxes paid, in which case the federal tax liability will be calculated automatically.
Each section of this form includes more detailed instructions for the items in that section. For help with a particular question, click on the question mark (?) adjacent to the field label.
After you've filled out the form, don't forget to press the "Calculate" button at the bottom of the form.
