With the exception of some student loan programs, most financial aid is awarded on the basis of 财务需要. 当你申请联邦学生资助时, the information you report is calculated using a formula established by Congress. 这个公式决定了 预期家庭贡献 (成立分公司), an amount you and your family are expected to contribute toward your education. (This amount may not exactly match the amount you and your family end up contributing.)如果你的 成立分公司 低于一定数量吗, you may be eligible for a Federal Pell Grant, assuming you meet all other eligibility requirements.
没有最大值 成立分公司 that defines eligibility for the other financial aid programs. 相反,你 成立分公司 is used in the following equation to determine your 财务需要:
出席费用 -估计家庭供款(成立分公司) =财政需要(FN)
We calculate your cost of attendance and subtract the amount you and your family are expected to contribute toward that cost. If there is anything left over, you are considered to have 财务需要. A financial aid package is put together for you that comes as close as possible to meeting your 财务需要. 然而, 因为资金有限, the amount awarded to you may fall short of the amount of which you are eligible. 当你决定是否需要帮助时, we must also consider other educational resources you are expected to receive during the school year.
