**Step 1: Calculate your Expected Family Contribution (EFC)**

To use the following Award Estimator, you will be required to visit the College Board's EFC Calculator to get the Expected Family Contribution (EFC). This is NOT what your family will actually be contributing. However, it is a calculation (much like tax brackets) as to what your family is expected to contribute. When selecting a formula, choose the Federal Methodology (FM).

**Step 2: Estimation Process**

Now that you have your EFC value, please complete the below form.

**** IMPORTANT - Please Note ****

- This is an ESTIMATE of financial aid for a first year undergraduate student and not your actual Financial Aid Award.
- Do not use EFC of 0 (zero) unless the College Board's EFC Calculator stated you should use 0 (zero).
