Reviewing Need for Financial Aid
Kettering University, like all higher-education institutions, determines your financial aid offers by starting with a calculation based on total education expenses and financial need.
COA - EFC = Financial Need
Cost of Attendance (COA)
The cost of attendance (COA) refers to the total amount of education expenses (tuition, books and supplies, room and board, personal expenses, transportation expenses, etc.).
Expected Family Contribution (EFC)
The EFC is the number used to determine your eligibility for federal, state and institutional need-based aid programs. This number results from the financial information provided in your FAFSA.
Once we have the result of this calculation, we consider all the available financial resources available to you.
