Financial Aid Determination

How financial aid eligibility is determined, including budgeted costs of attendance

The Department of Education processes the information from the FAFSA and runs it through a formula called Federal Methodology.

The result is the Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which is a measure of financial strength received with FAFSA data and compared against an estimated cost of attendance.

This is based on “direct costs” (billed to the student by Cabrini) and “indirect costs” (not billed by Cabrini but a presumed student expense, such as gasoline or books).

  • Financial need is determined by taking the appropriate cost below and subtracting the EFC.
  • Please note the Cost of Attendance is NOT the students bill.
