Understanding your Financial Aid Award Letter

Financial aid is awarded to you based on your financial need and the timeliness of your FAFSA application.  Financial need is the difference between the estimated cost of attending SUNY Sullivan and your expected family contribution (EFC). This financial need is reduced by grants for which you may be eligible followed by low-interest federal loans and/or part-time employment.

The budget category on your award letter is an estimate of your annual cost of attendance.  It includes tuition, fees and an allowance for books, supplies and transportation. The budget also includes an allowance for living expenses comprised of room, board and personal expenses.  This living allowance is less for students who live
with their parents and/or commute to the college and is considered an indirect cost** (see below).
