How does Defiance College determine financial need?
Need is based on the following: Cost of Attendance – Expected Family Contribution (EFC) = Financial Need. The EFC is determined by information reported on the FAFSA. The EFC is used to determine all need-based aid. The calculation formula for the EFC is established by law.

 

What can I do if my or my parent's income has changed?
You may apply for a Special Circumstance if you have had a significant change in income or benefits. Please contact the Financial Aid Office to discuss your situation.

 

What should I do if I find an error on Student Aid Report (SAR)?
Corrections to your SAR can be made online using your PIN. Simply go to www.fafsa.ed.gov, and then go to Make Corrections to a Processed FAFSA.

 

Can monthly payments be arranged?
Many families prefer to make their college payments in smaller, more frequent installments. For information on the DC Payment Plan click here.

 

Where do I pay my tuition bill?
Payment of tuition, room, and meal charges is made in the Business Office in Defiance Hall room 213 prior to each semester or summer session. Students will be billed in advance of the registration date for each term. Confirmed financial aid awards are subtracted from the bill, except for campus job earnings. Payment from campus employment comes directly to the employed student in monthly payroll checks.

 

Defiance College reserves the right to make changes and designate the effective date of changes in financial aid programs, policies and procedures as necessary.
