Determining Financial Aid Awards
- First, we assign you a Cost of Attendance budget based on your dependency status. This budget is based on the full-time cost of tuition, books and supplies and an estimated cost for living expenses.
- Second, we subtract the EFC that was reported on your Student Aid Report. The result is your Estimated Financial Need. You will receive funding, as available, up to this remaining need amount.
- Financial aid is awarded in the following order, based on available funds:
- Federal Pell Grant
- Other grants (for example, SEOG, Cal-Grants, Bureau of Indian Affairs Grants, EOPS)
- Work-study employment
- Many of these funds are limited and are awarded until they are depleted. In addition, there is a maximum annual limit for each award. All external funds must be reported to the Financial Aid Office even if received directly by the student.
- This means that it is possible for you to have remaining need even after all funds have been awarded.
- No. You are not eligible for a Pell Grant or SEOG.
- But you may be eligible for BOG, Federal Work Study and a Stafford Student Loan.
- The same formula as above will be used and any unmet need will first be filled by BOG and then with FWS. You may also be eligible to apply for a Federal Stafford student loan.
