Truman Net Price Calculator – EFC Calculation
What is the EFC (Estimated Family Contribution)? The EFC is the number that is
used to determine your eligibility for Federal student aid. This number results
from the financial information you will provide on your FAFSA. The EFC is computed
through Federal methodology established by Congress using income and asset
information. Your EFC is reported to you in your Student Aid Report (SAR).
The EFC is not the dollar amount your family will be required to pay but rather
an estimate of your family's financial strength and ability to contribute to
