GHC uses the following formula to determine a student’s financial need and eligibility for financial aid:

                       Cost of Attendance

-          Expected Family Contribution*

=      Financial Need

* Expected Family Contribution (EFC) comes from the FAFSA.  This number represents what a family should reasonably be able to contribute towards a student’s education-related expenses.
