Frequently Asked Questions

What impact will outside scholarships have on my aid package?

Ithaca College reserves the right to adjust your aid package based on new information regarding your outside resources of aid. However, any outside scholarships will be allowed to go against your "unmet need" first, then against a portion of your loans, and finally any need-based Ithaca funding. Unmet need is the difference between your "Estimated Family Cost to Attend Ithaca" on your award letter and our institutional calculation of your Expected Family Contribution (EFC). This is not the same as your Federal EFC.
