*The Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is an index of a student's eligibility for financial aid based upon the financial and demographic information they provide in the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Generally speaking, the lower a student’s EFC, the greater potential they have to receive need-based financial aid such as the Federal Pell Grant or NC state grants. The FAFSA is filed each year of a student's enrollment in college.
