How Need-Based Financial Aid is Calculated

When you apply for federal student aid, the information you report is used in a formula that calculates your "EFC."

If your EFC is below a certain amount, you may be eligible for a Federal Pell Grant. In addition to the Pell Grant, your EFC helps determine your eligibility for Wittenberg grants, endowed scholarships, work awards, and subsidized student loan programs.

Applying for Need-Based Financial Aid

Students applying for financial assistance based upon demonstrated need must:

1) Submit an Application for Admission. Though you must be an accepted student to receive a financial aid award, you may begin the financial aid process before an admission decision has been reached.

2) Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Be sure to list Wittenberg University, Title IV Code 003143, as a recipient.
