I am now a freshman at Tulane University. How likely are they going to change the school aid will give me for next year? Continue year when I filed for financial aid, our EFC was nearly $ 36,000 (based on 2009 income taxes). But, on January 2009 my dad at sea his job and filing FAFSA this year will show on estimated EFC of $ 10,000 – $ 12,000. I admit that’s still not eligible for grants but is here a Possibility that the school itself will give me more aid? The cost of attendance at Tulane is about $ 54,000. I have a $ 20,000 earn erudition and $ 5.500 in student loans. My parents took a credit of ~ $ 28.500. Aid (in most cases) is calculated as CoA-EFC And Hence the mind why my parents took a credit of $ 28.500 since they could “contribute” that greatly. But, if my EFC drops to $ 10.000 to 12.000 here will be ~ $ 18.500 left over. Assuming they’ll give me Perkin’s Loans instead (assuming $ 6,000 max), here’s still nearly $ 12.500 left over. Will the school give me that greatly in “need-based” So, here’s a chance that our income force go below $ 75,000. As of continue year, Tulane has a “no-credit” policy if family income is below $ 75,000. Will I be eligible for that or is that only if starting as a freshman?
