FinAid Methodology

Do any of the parents or students know whether Villanova uses the federal or institutional methodology for financial aid calculations? Also, does anyone know whether Nova calculates home equity into the financial equation?

    Redsoxfan, you should go back on the Nova thread and read the Financial Aid awards given this year. Nova seems to have their own way of giving aid. And note, they do NOT meet your family's EFC. They might give some big money to a few people, but no one on here had their EFC met. Go back and read the older threads if you are thinking of applying here and needing a lot of money.

    There are also posts about other schools that don't meet the EFC. It's something to look into before applying to any college. It doesn't seem exclusive to Villanova.

    Totally agree momkaes. But OP asked about Nova specifically.
