Colleges that Meet 100% of Financial Need
This is a list that US News reported of colleges and universities that claim to meet 100% of their students’ financial need. Keep in mind that while these schools may meet 100% of financial need, they may meet it based on their own standards.
For example, need is calculated by subtracting your estimated family contribution (EFC) from tuition; however, some schools calculate this number differently, estimating a higher EFC, and therefore providing you with less financial aid then you assumed they would.
Don’t get us wrong, this list is a good start. But students may find that other schools could end up leaving them with smaller tuition bills. And as always, try not to assume anything.
