Sticking It to Students: A New Losing Formula for Financial Aid Eligibility?
O'Toole, Chuck
Connection: The Journal of the New England Board of Higher Education, v18 n2 p19 Fall 2003
Describes the Department of Education's 2003 proposed revision of the Expected Family Contribution formula, which determines family eligibility for federal financial aid. In many cases, it will mean that parents requesting aid for September 2004 will appear to have higher after-tax incomes than they did the year before. Such changes would cut about $270 million in government spending on student aid. (SM)
