Financial Aid Package
Understanding your Financial Aid
Financial aid awards are based on financial need, availability of funds, and the student's expected family contribution (EFC). The EFC is calculated from the information submitted though FAFSA. Financial need is determined by subtracting the student’s EFC from the Cost of Attendance provided by the university.
Estimated Cost of Attendance
Includes tuition and fees, indirect costs, and room and board. Tuition and fees are billed by the university. Indirect costs are estimates and can vary from student to student.
The total amount of aid a student can receive may not exceed his/her cost of attendance. Aid includes, scholarships, loans, and external funding.
Once you have successfully submitted your FAFSA, met all of your financial aid requirements, and received an award notification email, you can accept or decline your financial aid package on Goldlink.
