Special Circumstances

The expected Family Contribution (EFC) formula is basically the same for all applicants, but there is some flexibility.  The financial aid administrator might adjust the information used to calculate your EFC to take into account special circumstances you might have.  These circumstances could include: (unemployment, death of a family member, divorce or separation, unusual medical expenses, etc.)  There must be compelling reasons for the financial aid administrator to take this step, however, and you will have to provide adequate documentation to support any adjustments.
