As with all Florida State University System institutions, tuition and fees are determined yearly by the Florida Legislature and the Board of Trustees. Therefore, these figures are estimates and subject to change.

Expected Family Contribution
The Federal Government uses a standard need analysis formula to determine your family's ability to contribute to the cost of your education. Income, assets, family size, number of family members attending college, dependency status, are some of the factors used to determine the Expected Family Contribution (EFC).

Financial need (the amount of Financial Aid you're eligible for) is the cost of attendance minus the expected family contribution.

Cost of Attendance - EFC = Financial Need

For example, if the estimated student budget is $20,519 and the estimated family contribution (EFC) is $5,000, you would have $15,519 in financial need.

In order to compute your payment obligation using your Financial Aid Award letter, open the 2015-2016 Payment Worksheet (Excel) or Payment Worksheet (pdf).
