I was recently informed that my financial aid was cut in half due to my EFC. I was given and EFC of 7500. I think this number seems a little too high.
I am 28 and living on my own in NJ while attending school in NY (Work in NY). Income for 2016 taxes was $31,000.
I just don’t see how it would be possible for me to live on my own and attend school when I barely qualify for any aid.
I am attending a college that costs $17,500 a year.
Thanks for any insight
