In part, Mark writes, Even as Congress simplified some aspects of the financial aid form and formula, it made other aspects more complicated.

Modifications include:

  • EFC (Expected Family Contribution) becomes "Student Aid Index."
  • Form reduced from 108 questions to ~ three dozen. 
  • How many from one family are in college will not be a factor.
  • Income Protection Allowance increased.
  • Child Support not counted as untaxed income.
  • Other cash support to a student -- not factored in.
