Financing a college education is an important investment and understanding a student's
financial aid budget is a key component. The cost of attendance is calculated by each
university for one year of attendance. The cost of attendance is based on direct and
indirect costs. Direct costs include tuition, fees, room and board (if living on campus).
Indirect costs are not paid directly to Stony Brook and include books, supplies, transportation
and personal expenses.

Financial aid eligibility is based on your financial need. Financial need is calculated
by subtracting your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) from your Estimated Cost of
Attendance. Once your financial need is determined, Stony Brook will work to create
a financial aid package for you. The formula to determine your financial need is:
Your EFC is calculated each year using a formula determined by the US Congress after the filing of a FAFSA. Your EFC is listed on the Student Aid Report (SAR) after your FAFSA has been submitted.
