Expected Family Contribution . According to the FAFSA FAQ:. The Expected Family Contribution (EFC) measures your family's financial strength and is used to determine eligibility for federal student aid during the school year. Your EFC is displayed on your Student Aid Report (SAR) after your application is processed. The information reported on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is used to calculate your EFC. The school uses the EFC to determine your federal student aid eligibility and financial aid award.. Your EFC is not the amount of money your family will have to pay for college, nor is it the amount of federal student aid you will receive. It is a number used by the school to calculate the amount of federal aid for students who are eligible to receive.. For more information, you can visit the financial aid office of your school or look at Funding Education Beyond high School: the Guide to Federal Student Aid programs in studentaid.ed.gov/students/publications/student_guide/index.html. Or, you can request a free copy of Funding Education Beyond high School: the Guide to Federal Student Aid programs by calling the Federal Student Aid Information Center. See the Customer Service page for contact and assistance information.
