Impact on Student Financial Aid Eligibility If the Federal Financial Aid Calculation Were Changed
James Flowers, Associate Director, Office of Student Financial Aid
Date:  Wed., June 17, 2015
Time:  12:00-1:30PM
Location:  MGH 171E

Abstract: 

The purpose of this project was to review the effectiveness of the expected family contributions (EFCs) to determine financial aid programs available to students when changing the federal financial aid calculation. The project spanned 2 consecutive academic years and examined what might happen if the current federal need analysis methodology was changed from a 3-needs test to a single-needs test process. In addition, an anonymous survey was used to gather opinions about the overall financial aid process of students receiving financial aid assistance.

The 309 randomly selected students from the target university in the project were identified as having their EFCs calculated using the simple-needs test or the zero-needs test over the 2004-2005 and 2005-2006 academic years. The researcher recalculated the EFCs of these students using a single-needs test to determine how their financial aid awards for both academic years would be affected based on their new financial aid eligibility. Furthermore, the selected students were sent an anonymous survey to gather perceptions on their individual experiences with the financial aid process.

The results of the project indicated that 16.5% of the selected students would still be considered in the zero-needs test category or have no financial contribution using a single-needs test to determine their EFCs, and 83.5% of the selected students would find a minimal to no change to their EFCs using a single-needs test. The use of the single- needs test that determined the EFCs to award financial aid funds showed a variation from significant impact to modest impact to no impact in the amount of funds awarded from federal, state, and institutional agencies. Further results in financial aid funding showed that the use of a single-needs test generated a decrease in the overall unmet financial needs of the target population due to an increase in the EFCs. The anonymous survey results suggested that the data should be viewed as preliminary and not conclusive due to the low response rate of the survey. Based on the overall research project, the researcher recommended that additional research be conducted on federal, state, and institutional levels in order to weigh the effectiveness of the financial aid process on a much broader scale.
