How are Estimated Expenses Calculated?

  • Living expenses are calculated from the 2016-17 Office of Student Financial Aid (OFSA) Student Budgets. (Books, room and board, personal, transportation, and insurance)
  • Dependent expenses are calculated from the 2016-17 OFSA Student Budgets based on the following factors:

Spouse = [35%(non-traditional room and board)] + personal expenses + transportation expenses for non-traditional students (this is a 9-month figure converted to 12 months).
Child = Figure based on the Department of Education needs analysis EFC Formula, 2016-2017
(Table C3: Income Protection Allowance, see note for amount allowed for each additional family member (this is a 9-month figure converted to 12 months)).
