What is my EFC

<p>Hello and merry christmas, I am trying to find out my EFC, i have allreafy used two EFC calculators but i do not know if they are accurate. I am 21 years old and in this year I made 24,000. My mom had absolutely no income and shes 48. No unemployment, no social security, no food stamps, nothing. Our houshold size is just me and here (2). Thanks in advanced.</p>

<p>The best way to find out your EFC is just the way you have done it - using an EFC calculator online. Someone will probably post a link to the detailed calculations so you can work through it all yourself as a crosscheck.</p>

<p>How does your mom live if she has no income? Do you support her?</p>

<p>EFC calculators may not work well for you. You may qualify for an auto 0 where your income won't count, but I'm not sure. Also, if you're supporting your mom, don't know how that would work.</p>

<p>BTW....if you are supporting your mom, what's going to happen once you're in school and no longer earning much? Are you planning to commute from home?</p>

<p>I tried the college board and sallie mae EFC calculator, it gave me a automatic zero. And yes i do support my mom, im not gonna have her living in the street, i already got threw my first semester and i did it online, thats how is going ti be for the first year and a half. This past semester i got a EFC of zero but I only made 17,000.
Thanks guys</p>
