After the FAFSA: What Happens Next?


After you've filed your FAFSA, and you've checked your Student Aid Report to be sure all your information is correct, and now you're wondering how that data is used to come up with the list of financial aid for which you're eligible.

Your eligibility for financial aid depends on your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), your year in school, your enrollment status, and the cost of attendance. The financial aid office will determine how much financial aid you are eligible to receive.
