2015 - 2016 Student Budget [Cost of Attendance]

How Is Financial Need Determined?
The federal government standardizes the exact calculations used to determine Expected Family Contribution. This means that your contribution would be assessed in the same way no matter what school you attended. Actual awards can vary by school because of the differences in cost. The methodology used can be explained with the following calculation:

Cost of Attendance - Expected Family Contribution (EFC) = Financial Need

Since these are standard budgets, they do not represent the actual costs each student will spend. They do, however, represent the maximum aid that can be awarded a student at San Diego Mesa College. It is strongly encouraged that students develop their own budgets before beginning school.
