financial need

The difference between what it costs a student to attend school, and what they and their family can afford to pay. Student resources are the amount a student and their family are expected to have available for school. This amount is calculated based on the information on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA. A standard government formula is used to determine the family's contribution. It takes into account the family size, number in college, total income from the previous calendar year, and assets.
