Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s curator insight, April 15, 2014 9:08 AM

"If only one had time to read them all. Pick one and be stimulated. "The papers, commissioned by the Foundation, are intended to stimulate greater discussion and evaluation around several key topics in student finance, including affordability of higher education, student loan repayment, and federal-state-institutional partnerships. The papers are aimed at addressing solutions that can be implemented at the institutional, state and federal levels."

Dr Omar Selim's curator insight, July 5, 2014 5:56 AM

3 Things to Know About the Expected Family Contribution and College Affordability – Head Count - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education

3 Things to Know About the Expected Family Contribution and College Affordability – Head Count - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Trends in College Access & Higher Education | Scoop.it

The federal government should slash the Expected Family Contribution, argues an op-edin Friday’s New York Times by Steve Cohen, co-author of a recent book on admissions and student aid.

Cutting the expected contribution, he suggests, “would force colleges to construct financial-aid packages without the artificial price supports of inflated contribution numbers—and make paying for college less agonizing.”

The Expected Family Contribution, or EFC, is calculated with data families provide on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. That figure is subtracted from a college’s cost of attendance to determine a student’s financial need. Eligibility for federal financial aid is based on that calculation of need, and many states and colleges also use it to distribute their need-based aid.

Here are three things to know about the EFC and college affordability (as well as a selection of tweets on Friday about the issue):
